Moving between 2008R2 servers with exchange 2010

I need to move all services from a 2008R2 server, with Exchange 2010, to an identical server (short story, corruption; but functional for now). Both systems have the same service packs; running in a virtual environment. I need, most importantly, a proper order to move services, mailboxes, certificates, roles, etc.

I have searched but can't find any documentation for this particular move.

Thanks in advance for your help.

You have to install Exchange in to the new machine first.  During the installation you tell it to join an existing Exchange Org.  So now you have two Exchanges in the same Org.  Now use the Move Mailbox feature to move the mailboxes to the new Exchange.  Give it a couple days to be sure the Outlook Clients auto-correct to the new mailbox location.  Then use the very specific step from MS for removing the "first" Exchange From an organization.  I don't have links to the material at hand, but they should be fairly easy to search for on MS site or on www.exchangeserver.org

These are very specific things,...do not do it wrong,...do not do it out of order,...do not skip any correct steps along the way.  Screwing this up will become very difficult to recover from.
