reinstall os on server

I have a 2008 Data Center server that has something out of whack and it takes 2-3 hours for it to restart.  I'm tired of trying to fix it and want to wipe it and reinstall the OS.  The only thing this server does is act as a hyper v host.  I am going to move the virtuals to another host.  Will I have problems if I give the reinstalled server the same name and IP that it has now?
