Does your icinga-mobile still work from a normal browser?

If access fails from mobile only, try to ping the hostname from your mobile
and check if it already pings the new IP. Some mobile providers seem to have
long caching times (around 24h) for DNS entries. Just waiting a day might help
in this case.
