It is not well-tested yet, but that is the intention behind it. The
details are a bit more complex (e.g., the controller can select the
network interface that it uses for communication with the satellite, and
that can be a different one than those used for connecting DRBD
resources, etc...).

I have used this command in the past to change resource configurations
from Ethernet to Infiniband, from IPv4 to IPv6, etc., so that's all
supposed to work.
