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.
