2.  While doing configuration for LDAP  configuration in Portal, You can perform configurations using virtual host name for LDAP, and if due to some reasons you need to reconfigure your Portal to use a differnt DB or LDAP machine, you simply need to update your hosts file definition with the new ip address, Test the connectivity  and you are all set
 
(The product installed should be of same version and the configurations should be same across the old and new machine)
 
( You can follow a similar appraoch for configuring database server using virtual host name, and if due to some reasons (say DB machine crash) , Reverting to a new machine would be quicker)
