I need to move a host to a new location, so I will have to assign a new name and IP address.  What else needs to be done?

Thanks.  Is the license tied to the host name or IP Address?

No it's not tied to IP address or hostname.

hi

once you log in into the ESXi console , you can change the root password, change the new ip address/Gateway ip address/subnetmask.

Let me know if you have any concerns.

With Regards
Karthik rajasekaran.
