How to Change IP in Navisphere of a Host?

OK I setup an ESX 2.5.5 server awhile back and it's working, it's connected to our SAN and setup to access the VMFS LUN and I have a couple production servers running on it and all is well.  However right after I had set it up I had changed the IP address of it, and had asked for help in here on doing that and got some help and it worked.  Today I realized in Navisphere this ESX host is showing up with a U (for unmanaged) on it because it can't be seen because it's still listed as the original IP address.  How can I fix this to be the correct IP without disrupting anything?  I don't believe it's actually causing a problem, but I would like it to show the right IP and show that it's managed like it did after I first set it up and afraid this could cause problems with something in the future.

Have you installed Navisphere Agent in the service console?

By the way - you're absolutely correct - the U indicates unmanaged and it does not affect the operations of the host. It's just annoying...

Yes the Navisphere agent is installed and running on the ESX service console, and it was all fine and dandy showing as managed in Navisphere until I changed the IP address which of course I didn't notice until much later.  I may just leave it since it's not affecting anything because I think what I'd have to do is remove the host from Navisphere and Virtual Infrastructure 3 then add it back which will be a pain for such a small problem.
