if you use the IP Address of vCenter Server can you connect?

can you resolve the vcenter server hostname to this IP Address?

no firewall issue before and after.
Is it possible to change the IP address of vcenter in Windows ?
or do I have to do a special procedure ?

I cannot remember anymore, because I switched back to the old IP.
But in general, how to change the IP, in the right order ?

vCenter is DNS dependant, so if you DNS, Hostname matches IP Address, should be ready to go.
