How to restore Exchange Server 2010 DBs on Different Exchange 2010 ?

Greetings,,,

i plan to change the Domain Name and I have an exchange server with FQDN,say "exchange.mycom.local". I would like to transfer the current mailboxes to a new exchange server with FQDN,say "mail.xxxx.com". What would you suggest on this.

create the PST file of all the mailboxes on the current exchange server.
Import them to the new server.
Make sure you have exchange sp1 with  rollup 4

any reason to change the  AD domain name. Its lot more work to rebuild all the servers. Might be an easy solution
