Porting to new hardware - best way?

Same version of Solaris etc. Moving to new hardware.

The application that runs on this server is easy enough to re-install but Im concerned about things like:-

1. Users/passwords/home directories
2. Cron jobs
3. Static routes

Is there ANY way to either export this sort of thing so that I can re-do on new server or is it going to be a manual process only?

I did think about maybe creating a flash archive of the entire system and doing a flash install from DVD for Solaris on the new machine? Not that straightforward though.
