Testing Exchange 2010 SP1 Lefthand Snapshot replication

I currently have Exchange 2010 SP1 virtualized on HP Lefthand SAN's.  I am doing nightly snapshots using the Lefthand VSS provider and replicating them offsite.  What is the best way to test these replicated snapshots.  I've already mounted the snapshots and recovered emails using the recovery database but I want to simulate that the current exchange server crashed and I would need to setup a new exchange server offsite and recover the mailboxes using the replicated snapshots.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Lost of ground to cover so I would suggest that you read this http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd876874.aspx since it will discuss multiple levels of failure and resolutions.
