We have two vcenter 6.7 U3 servers in enhance link mode setup. We are moving a datacenter where vcenter-B to another location. I have to change the IP of the ESXi hosts as well as the vcenter. Both the vcenter and ESXi hosts are with FQDN. The vcenter server is using a certificate from the internal root CA. I guess there will not be an issue with the certificate since the FQDN remains the same. I will not have VAMI access, so I have to change the IP via console. I would appreciate any input on this.
Changing vCenter ip can be done by following the below article
Since the system name is FQDN and also certificates doesnt have IP requirements as mandatory . So this can be achived .
I will not have access to HTTP:// New-or-FQDN/vsphere-client once I moved the equipment to the new location because the vcenter will be power down with the old IP. The browser connection will not stay alive if i perform the ip change in the old location. I will only have access to the console via a hosting ESXi host. I have to do this via console, not ssh either.
Why powered off
once you change the IP browser connection will be gone .
you can relogin again . You can change via console as well.

Thanks, I have to do ALT+F2 in my case. I hope that will work for me. I will have another issue with ESXi hosts vpxa.cfg might be pointing to the old VCSA's IP; hence ESXi hosts will be in a disconnected state. I hope the reconnect ESXI will fix.
