vSphere 5 Firewall Settings

I recently had to change my vSphere's IP address and before I did this i really believe i configured the "Allow IP Addresses" from within Firewall Settings but cant find the entry anymore and I have to add more IPs to the list and down the firewall list everything is set to allow "All".  I'm not sure if the IP address change cause this setting to hide the "allowed IPs" or what???  But when I'm working outside of the "allowed IP list" I cant access the Management Console so something is blocking this.

is there another area where these could be located that I could check?

thanks!

You could reset to Defaults the configuration of ESXi 5.0, if it does not cause too much of an issue.

Yes, Reset System Configuration preserves VMFS datastore, but just does a reset factory defaults on the ESXi server.

later you can browse datastore and add VMs backupmto Inventory.

how about iSCSI drives, and the other Remote Management console I created?  Will they be affected?

Also, will connectivity to VMs be lost during this time?

ALL CONFIGURATION WILL BE RESET TO FACTORY DEFAULTS.

AS YOU HAVE TO RESTART THE ESXi SERVER VMs will be affected!!!

Take screenshots before reset, should not take too long to get backup and running.
