If you change the IP address of ePO the agents will still be able to communicate via the DNS/Hostname of ePO.  If both Hostname and IP address change, then you can either update the DNS record to point to the new server and route Agent traffic accordingly or redeploy agents.  Redeploying agents will give  new sitelist - which includes the new Hostname and Ip Address of ePO.   There is no mechanism for the agents to automatically identify an ePO server.

I read your message three times and need a clarification if you would. Your first sentence implied that you installed 5.1 on their AD? I'm not certain that was your intent so here are my questions.

1. Did you install ePO on its own server with SQL or SQL on another server? Could you clarify the install footprint for me?

2. AD being re Ip'd?

We will have a better idea of how to proceed from there.
