Rename Nimble volume and VMWare datastore

We want to re-name several volumes/datastores in our virtual environment.  We're using a Fiber Channel Nimble array (not iSCSI) and are running on VMWare v 5.0

Is this as simple as just renaming the volume on the Nimble array, and then renaming the datastore within vCenter?  I've read where you can run into issues with iSCSI due to the volume name being imbedded in the datastore path/icn, but was not sure if this applies to Fiber Channel implementations or not.  I suspect no, but thought I would double check.

 

Also, what impact does the rename have (if any) on replication?
