Is replacing the arcgisserver/directories and arcgisserver/config-store folders with the same folders from another server that you want to, in essence, "replicate" supported?  For example, my IT department wants to rebuild one of my server, and I was hoping I could just copy those directories with my old configuration somewhere, reinstall the server software and create a new site, and then overwrite the new arcgisserver directories with my old ones to have all the map services and configurations retained?  Is this possible?  Are there specific steps I have to follow?

Thanks, Jay
