I need to reformat the system drive on my Mac OSX 10.6 server, and reinstall the OS. I have exported the Users & Groups from Workgroup Manager, exported the Preferences and plist from Server Admin. Is there anything else I need do to preserve the same network environment after the reinstall? How do I maintain DNS and Open Directory settings?

Xserve, OS X Server

    Copy the entire boot disk out to an external disk using Disk Utility — clone the boot disk to an external disk once or twice — wipe the boot disk, and then tell 10.6 to migrate the settings in during the installation.
