Change DataBase location for System Center VMM 2012

I wanted to provide CNAME as a DB connection for SCVMM rather than actual server name. The reason for doing so was to make sure incase of mirrored DB goes down, I can make DNS changes and that can take care of SCVMM rather than making registry or application level changes.There are many ways to do so but one registry hack can also make changes.

"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager Server\Settings\Sql " and update following changes


Restart System Center service and this will update SCVMM as well.

What about changing the connection string value as well??
