Renew SSL certificate after ip change of the GUI

Dear colleagues,

I ran into a problem after I changed the IP of the GUI interface. The Web UI was still reachable, but when opening the VNC console, I got an a "failed to connect to server" error.
I moved the files:
  • /etc/pve/pve-root-ca.pem
  • /etc/pve/priv/pve-root-ca.key
somewhere else and did

pvecm updatecerts -f

Nevertheless safari did not open the noVNC console. Firefox allows it with some errors. When I display the certificate, that is served, I see still the old IP, which causes the certificate mismatch.

Is there an easy way of renewing the certificate. Any suggestions?
