If your ssh connection is bind to the hostname (ssh
user@hostname.domain) the connection will (most probably) hang up if you
change the hostname of your target. However, changing the hostname
should not be ab problem if your ssh connection is bind to the IP adress
(ssh user@xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx).

An other possibility would be to change the hostname (e.g within
/etc/hostname and via command hostname) but not changing the hostname
for the network (e.g. do not change /etc/hosts/ ...)
In this case the ssh connection should not hang up but the new RAID
device would get the name from the new hostname.
This is, what I also tried to descriped in my bug report (see quick fix).
