I need to change the public NIC in our BM37 NW6 server. Am I right in
thinking that the following procedure is the easiest way.

Remove all bindings to the current NIC and then delete the NIC itself.
Down the server, install the new NIC and reboot.
When the new NIC is detected set this up with the exact same name and IP
address(es) as the old NIC.
Reboot again.

I'm hoping that this will mean I don't have to do anything with the filters
as I have a lot set up.

If not please advise of a better way.
