Default Migrate Server to New Hardware

We're starting to plan a server migration. Mgmt wants us to follow procedures similar to a recovery process, which means they want us to restore a backup. We backup our servers a couple different ways. One is to a online hosted service and another is to tape using Symantec Backup Exec. The catch to this is that we're buying different hardware for the new server. Backup Exec has IDR to cover this; see link below. I wanted to ask if anyone has been through a similar process and if they would share the experience.

Intelligent Disaster Recovery (IDR) Restore | Symantec Connect

Have you resolved this issue yet?
I would be happy to give you some more info on a VPS solution if you're considering that avenue.

we completed the migration. we couldn't complete the IDR because that process has certain constraints that wouldn't let us complete it. we ended up installing a fresh os and then restoring from the online backup service. rebooted, reconfig'd and all was good.
