We have two Windows 2003 servers.  We have a new large Dell server with lots of memory and disk space running a small application.  We have an older IBM server that is a with Windows 2003 and MS SQL 2000 SP4 running a large application.  What are the gotchas we may run into if we back up both servers and swap out the applications.  In other words run the larger application on the new Dell server and the smaller application on the IBM server?

If you have the disk space just do it but don't delete the current apps while you test, then redirect the users.
