    Yes, you can just make sure you run ipconfig /flushdns, ipconfig /registerdns, and dcdiag /fix. Make sure if you change the IP of the Server you need to change the primary DNS to the new IP address.

    If you don't force update the records on a DC then you will have issues until the DC updates it's SRV records and A record which is why you must run those commands.
