Can the new AD server be directly changed to the old AD server IP?

The original domain environment has a 2008R2 AD server. First, add a 2019 server AD and upgrade it to the main domain server. The original 2008R2 AD server is downgraded and shut down. Can the IP of the new 2019 server AD be directly changed to the IP address of the original 2008R2 AD server?

    ipconfig /registerdns 

    after change to minimize disruptions.
