I would suggest that the best way to deal with changing radically the underlying OS is to make a replica on a new machine and then get rid of the old one if possible. If multiple replicas are already available I would just wipe out the machine, re-install, then replicate again. Just pay attention to backup things that may be only on the first master (for example the CA if you used selfsign).
