Is it doing the same again or just was one off incident? Anyway, if u want
to install a new server without disturbing the settings of Outlook, then:


        Install the new server with any name in the same organisation.

        Move all the mailboxes (Online u can do that) to the new server so
with the public folders.

        Ask everyone to exit outlook and re-open again. The outlook will go
to the old server, which in-turn will direct Outlook to the new server. The
entry in the profile will automatically point to the new server.

        When everyone has done so, retire the old server.

The servers' hardware is brand new, it's only 5 months old. The fan is still
going well. We're thingking about the safest scenario on replacing this
server using exactly the same name and configuration to prevent our 300+
users to reconfigure their outlook connection setting (server repointing).
Or is there anyway to build another new server with a new name without
having this, while the old one is restored.

I personally would make sure there is a valid backup.  How old is the server
/ hard disk drive?  The power supply?  Is the fan still going on the power
supply and / or server chassis?

sometimes those are warnings of worse things to come.
