we plan to change the Hardware from one of our Servers Running RELENG_4.
The New Hardware becomes CPU-Types Xeon w/ EM64 -> ia64 architecture.
Xeon with EM64T actually use the AMD64 aka x86-64 Instruction Set 
Architecture, not IA-64 aka the Itanium stuff.

Another possible change is the Change to DragonFlyBSD.
But here is the same again, to less knowledge about this step.
DragonFlyBSD currently only works in IA32/i386 mode on AMD64 processors.

Iportant to know is also that this is an Hot-Production-Server.
Then I suggest installing on a new machine, and testing thoroughly, and 
then replace in the field.
