Description of problem:
For VMs, if the user changes a configuration that requires the VM to be power cycled to take effect, a tooltip is displayed to inform the user.
However, the same applies for Hosts but and there is no such feature.
Some host configurations require the host to be re-installed in order to be pushed. One example is kdump integration. We have the following note in the
When you enable Kdump integration on an existing host, the host must be reinstalled for kdump to be configured. See Section 7.5.12, “Reinstalling Hosts”.
This is not user-friendly. This RFE is to create a similar feature for Hosts.

There are other options which require host reinstallation such as changing kernel command line parameters of the host or changing type of firewall for the cluster, so I'm reopening this RFE to cover all existing scenarios

Marina, this is not a bug, this is RFE, because all such changes either shows that somehow or the need to reinstall is described in documentation.
Also we are still looking at the scope we don't know yet if we will backport it to 4.1.z. Let's work on it for 4.2 and when done we will see.
Exclamation mark is displayed, but no particular error/warning is shown anywhere, I would expect some text in hosts detail view.
