Hardware Refresh Best Practices

What is the best ways to ensure the migration of configuration from older hardware to either BIG-IP VE or new hardware ?

  1. UCS with no platform check
  2. SCF - Complete load sys config
  3. SCF manually configuring piece by piece - merging components one by one


I was sceptic with UCS and that carries all network and management IPs along, and in a production environment it may mess up things while performing it.

same with full SCF load, it has so many dependent network and management-ip and route related config, that may not host and may mess up management IP.
