When a host is added from OLVM, the IP or Hostname of the KVM host value will be stored in OLVM database and used for the security certificate. So changing IP or Hostname of the KVM needs to be re-registeration of the Host in OLVM. Standard procedure will be: shutdown/migrate all the VMs, remove the host from OLVM, change the IP or hostname, and re-register the host via OLVM. However, it is a little bit more complex in one single KVM host with local storage.
