You will need a backup of the current server and a backup of the Organization Key to restore from.  Then follow the process below to migrate the server.

1. With the iso file mounted (or burned CD in the drive) of the new server, turn the server on.  You will see this screen:

4.  Enter the IP Address and Subnet Mask you will use for the new server during the configuration process.  Select OK.  THIS SETTING WILL BE OVERWRITTEN DURING RESTORE PROCESS.

8.  OPTIONAL - If you do not wish to create a DNS entry for the server (remember the IP Address and hostname will be overwritten during the restore operation), you can use the IP address instead of the FQDN for initial setup.  Below are some screenshots of my test lab as I made the DNS entry:

9.  Navigate to the server in a web browser, either by the FQDN (if you set it in DNS) or by IP Address (e.g. https://192.168.29.18:9000).  You should see a certificate warning, like the following screenshot.  These vary in appearance in the different browsers.  Continue to the site.
