ArcGIS Server migration procedures: rebuild due to new OS

I am about to embark on rebuilding a 10.5.1 map server on a new Windows 2016 server.

Old machine was 2008 R2. Still works great - so sad.

I understand this will be a complete rebuild.  (no comprehensive migration tools that I am aware of)

I am taking this as an opportunity to correct all the mistakes and retracements of the past while I learned the technology.


Cut to the chase:   Does anyone have an exhaustive sequential checklist of tasks or things to do that is in some semblance of a logical order when migrating a map server?


This is a public facing machine so I need to migrate SSSL cert. and somehow reauthorize the license so in the end I have an IDENTICAL machine that does not break my AGOL development.


Anyone want to take a crack at it?

Your efforts will be handsomely rewarded at UC2018.
