if you have a nameserver in your company, create a CNAME a la CVSSERVER. 
in this case you can simple transfer the repository from one to another 
server without touch every sandbox.

but in your case i think you must search/replace over all directorys in 
the sandbox by hand.
if no local changes exists in the sandboxes is simpler to delete the 
entire sandbox-directories and make a new checkout from the new cvs-server.
