    You would be better adding the new server, installing Exchange and then gracefully moving mailboxes and connectors to the new box.

    Doing a restore should be a last resort if the original server has crashed

    Lots of instructions on this sort of migration on line with a little bit of magic

      unless your backup software specifically supports restoring to separate hardware, this won't work.

      the T110 has vastly different hardware to a Gen 9 HP machine.
      Even just RAID controllers as a starting point.

      as already pointed out,

      1. install new software on new server
      2. perform migration/move mailboxes and other related as per relevant online documentation.
      3. safely remove Exchange from the old server.
      4. safely demote the old server if neccesary.

      Note - if you are running Exchange and DC on the one server, this could be a bit more interesting.
