I need to rename an ESX host. VMware's website provides the KB article: http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1010821

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?
