McAfee Agent & DNS

We have over 4000 clients with McAfee Agent 4.0 installed all pointing to a physical server running ePO 4.0 and the SQL database. There is no disaster recovery for this server so we are wanting to create a VMWare snapshot of the server so should the main server ever fail we can start this off.

However, my question relates to something else that was raised. I am aware that the McAfee Agent on every client points to both the ePO server name and the IP address of the server. Can we create a DNS entry for the ePO server so should the server ever fail we could build a new server with the same name but a different IP and point any client to the DNS entry?
