The big issue is hardware change, I recently took a hardware based cluster
and restored it in a virtual space. It worked flawlessly. I can't
guarantee it will work, but I'm guessing it will.

Thanks for the reply. To my knowledge, system state restores are
fickle and the new server needs to be as closely matched to the old
server as possible. There is some leeway in terms of differing
hardware, but I gone down all those avenues.
