Exchange backup/restore

Hi,
If I restore exchange to another box (new server) and keep running the old one.  (just using bare metal copy)

Can I just then do a an exchange database backup and restore when I want to switch over to the new box?

Any help would be great.

Thanks guys.
Yes i am moving to Exchange 2016 shortly. Just need to move to a bigger physical server.

The bare metal restore has taken a little longer than anticipated so I will restore that, then within a couple of days backup and restore the database to the new server.

Then I will worry about my exchange upgrade,

thanks again.
