ESX 3.5 hosts file has wrong ip

I have 2 ESX 3.5 Update 1 with about 10 to 15 VM's on them.  I need to make a change to the hosts file as this host file has the original 192.168.x.x address instead of the new 10.10.x.x address.  I know how to change it, my concern is what to do after I change it.  On top of that I can shut down or reboot the ESX because the VM's have some critical guests on them.  Please assist.  Thank you.

You shouldn't need to do anything, the hosts file should be picked up by ESX.  If anything you may need to clear the dns cache and arp cache but that should be straight forward
