Synology Storage Console for VMware Question

We just setup a new Synology NAS RS2421RP+ and installed the Synology Storage Console for VMware (.ova) and connected the Synology NAS to it. After getting everything up a running we decided we need to change the IP address of the Synology Storage Console for VMware VM.

What is the safest way to do this? Will our VMware Datastores connected to the  Synology NAS in VMware disconnect if we change the IP address or our Synology Storage Console for VMware VM?

VMware ESXI 7.0.2

That's what I was hoping to hear. I would think we could still use the datastores without it. Thanks for the information.
There are many methods to do this, logon to the Synology Storage console, and click Edit, and change the IP Address.

Or if using DHCP, easiest, change the reservation, reboot the Console, and it will obtain a new IP Address.

It just registers and communicates with vCenter Server via the plugin and sends scripted commands to the Synology NAS to create the datastores.

We've just tested here, given new IP Address via DHCP and via the Console and all is working well no losts LUNs or NFS Exports
Excellent. Thanks for testing this in your environment. We are using a static IP address currently.
Just login to console and changed, reboot. (both work and tested!)
Thanks. That worked!
