Changing database connection SQL Port number


we're looking to move our EPO and EPOEvents databases to a new SQL server.

Once we've moved the databases and gone to the Database Configuration page, will i be allowed to change ports from 1433 to a specified port suggested by our DBA's?

many thanks.

this is a screenshot from my lab:

make sure the "test connection" is successful before clicking on apply and restarting the ePO services
