-------------------------------------------------------Absolutely correct. On 
but what you have suggested, please tell me:-

Do i need to assign same name (old BE name) to new setup?
on the very same new server, can i setup /disasterrevovery without any issues?
I have MDBdata folder still on my storage. How can that be bind to
this new server?

Thanks
RD
