I'm looking to do a one-time backup of a few xserves before retiring the hardware.  All of the data lives on SANs on our network so I'm primarily interested in making sure I have a backup of the server for the services that are running on it.  Would a time machine backup be good enough if I were to need to restore back onto other hardware?

My inclination would be to use CarbonCopyCloner instead:

That would make an exact bootable clone of the server.
