Moving EPDM to a new server

I am moving my EPDM 2014 to a new server running EPDM 2015.  I know how to copy and restore the SQL database and archive files. 

 

However, I am confused about server names and making sure everything works when I turn the new one on.

 

Currently:

 

  • New server is named ABCOEPDM1, old server is ABCOEPDM
  • New server has Windows Server 2012 installed, SLQ Server 2014, and EPDM 2015 SP2.1

 

My plan is:

 

  1. Lock out the old server.
  2. Make SQL backup
  3. Copy SLQ backup to new server
  4. Copy Archives over to new server in a TEMP folder
  5. Shutdown old server
  6. Rename ABCOEPDM1 to ABCOEPDM
  7. Set the IP and MAC address of new server to old server

 

By having already installed EPDM2015 on ABCOEPDM1, will I have any issues?  I would assume to delete all the databases in SQL as they would point ot ABCOEPDM1?  Will SQL Server 2014 realize the name change?
