Upgrading PI system with new hardware

I am in the planning phase of a hardware and software PI system upgrade. We will build the new system prior to switching from the old to the new. We want to run the old and the new for a brief time to assure everything is reading correctly. We will use a temp license on the new PI system while we perform the upgrades. I am thinking that I will restore a copy of the backup to the new system and then run both systems until we prove the new system out. Has anyone had experience doing it this way? I would be interested in hearing the pros and cons of this type of approach. Thanks
