Exchange 2010 Recovery


I would like to get your advice on recovering Exchange 2010.  I currently backup at an application level our Exchange 2010 Server with DPM and I wanted to find out what steps i would have to take to recover this machine to  another piece of hardware should the event arise.  To my knowledge, I have to build a VM (hyper v), reset the computer account in AD, give the new VM the same name and IP Address of the old server, ensure all the required sw is installed for exchange e.g. Filter pack, recover the mailbox db and public folder to the same location as the previous server and then run the exchange install with the recovery switch? am I correct in saying this?  The other question I have is the Service Pack.  I am currently on sp3 but i don't believe there is an ISO with Exchange 2010 SP3 available which is needed during the recovery switch process.

Why reinvent the wheel.

Get an image based backup solution like Acronis,Symantec System Restore or the like and use it for a bare metal or dissimilar hardware restore.

If you get something like StorageCraft,you can mount the backup file as a VM and run it as a production server until the other is back up.

Pretty much a no brainer.
