In riak, if I want to replace a node in case of upgrading the
hardware, is the following step correct?

tar up riak/data on old machine

setup riak on the new machine, but don't start it

copy riak/data to the new machine and untar it

run reip (because I couldn't keep the old IP for some reason)

stop the old machine via riak stop
start the new machine with riak start
