Usually, there are multiple network interfaces. Other than changing the IP access has to be adjusted to match as well.
What access to the device do you have, ssh, file share that includes the root share?

Ifconfig is is the command you can use to activate an unused network interface with the IP segment you want. Then configure the various access to resources....

SSH and it looks like I have a hosts file with the IP so would I just change that?

Using the ifconfig you can bring up another IP on another network interface without the need to reboot.
Have to recheck hosts table is one thing, while there may be a hostname.interface  
The other deals with default route.

IMHO it is better to use another interface into which to put the new IP to have a way back in if an error occurs.

I realize you are not configuring the system from start, but the guide includes a reference to an application one can use to graphically connect/manage the SAN.

If memory serves there should, be a line defining the interface and the configuration it should have

Unable to find an example to post. You also needs to update the export, NFS, CIFS, iscsi shares if any to be accessible and allocatable via the new IP range

Mapping exactly what you have, adding the new IP/routing rules on a separate interface and then transitioning one system/application at a time while making sure everything continues to work.
