I need to rename an ESX host. VMware's website provides the KB article:

My question is about the datastores. After changing the name of the host and rebooting, the IQN number is still the same and the datastores seem to be intact. Should I change it? Or, how can I disconnect the datastores and then reconnect them so they reflect a new IQN number?
