-------------------------------------------------------My intent is to clone 
the crashy box to the new unused server using Acronis 
(offline bootcd) which we already use for backup, that should be the fastest 
way.

Anything I should be aware of that point. I'll disconnect the old box and 
hookup the new box which will have all the same stuff as the old one. Will 
that cause any problems with AD?
