Converting from old Hardware Lion server, to new hardware Mountain Lion Server

Your thoughts on what you would do:

Current install;
1) Mac Pro 1,1 with 4 internal drives, and two 10 disk USB3.0 drive arrays (one is a 2x Raid, the other is JBOD)
2) Running Lion Server
3) It is my DHCP server, DNS, iTunes hub, and Indigo Light Controller for the house.
4) It is not the Homer Internet Gateway, or email.
5) it is the first DNS server listed in the DHCP requests.

Looking to buy a Mac Mini (base configuration), upgrade RAM via Crucial.

Questions:

What would be the best upgrade process? Use the data migration agent or is there a set of files to move over?

Rebuild from scratch is not a 'bad' option except the DHCP table is quite long and would hate to rebuild it.

Any thoughts are appreciated. The Mac Pro 1,1 is having issues starting up after a reboot now, so after 6 years of service it will need to be retired soon.

If it was my setup, I would start from scrach. I know it is a bit more work but you will be assured that you are not bringing any problems over with you.

Done. Migration Assistant worked...
