I was in a similar situation back in March of this year and ended up doing a fresh install of BES 4 on the new hardware platform.
As far as the SRP ID goes, the best method is one which both migrates your SRP to the new installation and also provides you with a fallback path if you need it. The way this is accomplished is to install BES 4 on the new hardware, but don't allow the services to start until you're ready for the final cutover. At the point in time you're ready to convert to the new install, stop the services on the old BES, then start them on the new BES, import your users, etc.
Many of the users here on Blackberryforums.com have performed similar cutovers in the past months, so just keep this thread moving and others will jump in with more information as you need it.
