i dont think you mentioned the specific hardware involved...

i.e. brand and model number and config

it makes a difference in how we would approach it...

mainly because we have some 10 year old and older hardware that has been
running rock solid it's entire life and we expect several more years out of
some of it...

we keep hot and cold spares of everything though...

to be semi generic, i am talking about business / industrial rackmount
Compaq & HP servers, and some telco quality Cisco of course...


please do share...
