I have a server running SQL server 2005, we are about to make a switch to a new server enviroment and that machine will be running the same. All of our .net applications have a data connection to the old server. Once I bring up my new server, what would be the easiest way for me to have my apps recognize the new server name? Can I make a DNS entry to point to that machine?

If the old server is going away, you can certainly direct a DNS entry by that name to the new server.
