Subject Re: Changing DN hostnames->IPs

Short answer : renaming is not problem.

If you are running fairly recent Hadoop, NN does not store information 
about the DataNode persistently. So you should be ok in the sense 
NameNode does not depend on datanodes before the restart.

If you are running fairly old Hadoop, functionally it will ok. Only 
annoying thing would be that you might see all the previous datanodes 
listed as dead.

The recent trunk has some issues related using Datanode ID for some 
unclosed files.. but you may not be affected by that.
