No SQL alias exists


We are changing server names and IPs of our entire SP farm.

If a SP farm was originally stood up without configuring a SQL alias at the outset, can you still add a SQL alias to point to the new server name?

From your post, I would say yes. But I just want to get a nod from the guru himself ;)

I saw another post that said we have to build a NEW farm with a new connection string. It was a technet, so you can't trust everything you read on there!
