Exchange 2000 disaster recovery

I am creating a disaster recovery plan for our Exchange server.
Let's say we have an Exchange 2000 server called "NYExchange".  The motherboard malfunctions and we are unable to fix it.  We buy a new server (new and different hardware) and install Exchange 2000 with the same service packs, etc.  We name the new server "NYExchange" and restore the Exchange storage groups from our last backup using Backup Exec.  Would the new server work the same as our old server?  Is there anything else I would need to do to get it to work?

if your new server crashes then you can install exchange on another server using the setup.exe /disasterrecovery switch. once installed and patched with SP you need to restore the databases to this new server.
the exchange version and SP level need to be the same as on the old server
