Issues with backup after changing IP address

I'm attempting an upgrade on 6 -> 7. The first part of this, the backup, is not working properly because the machine was moved to a new location and received a new IP address. Everything else has been reconfigured okay, and functions using the correct IP, but when I try to use backup, it always tries to connect to the old IP in order to start processing. What should I be changing to fix this?????

    If you are using vbr.py, and trying to backup, maybe you just need to change or create a new config file. The configuration file is the one that you specify with the option --config-file xxx.ini.

    Is the first backup that you are doing? Is the database up?

    I have 3 node cluster and a backup server, working fine.

    I hvae changed the ip of all nodes and the cluster is working fine but backup is not working now.

    when i run vbr.py i am getting an error 

    dbadmin@vertica1:~$ /opt/vertica/bin/vbr.py --task backup --config-file /home/dbadmin/fullbak.ini
    Found Database port:  5433
    ssh: connect to host xx.xx.xx.110 port 22: Connection timed out
    Unable to ssh to host: xx.xx.xx.xx.110
    backup failed!


    This xx.xx.xx.110 is old ip of node2  i have recreated ini file but no change.

    what should i do to fix this?
