After that change make sure the old domain isn't reachable anymore. When
the engine will start that domain will appear at Storage main-tab as
unresponsive or some other error state. Right click it and choose "force
remove" (don't choose the checkbox in the dialog)
The import should retrigger itself.

The only problem I see (ATM) is that the configuration disk image under
this domain has a copy of hosted-engine.conf which is stale and has the old
ID.

If this is working I would appreciate if you can jot down a small post on
it, thanks!
