To save this happening again (and again ...)
Would it make sense to (remotely) backup the host key and restore it after the reinstallation?

host key backup
Posted Feb 23, 2010 22:56 UTC (Tue) by nix (subscriber, #2304)
More than once I've seen disaster-recovery hosts hotswapped into the place
of the machine they replace, IP address and all... but oops! they have a
different host key! Too late to fix, the original machine is dead now.
(Yes, this is a configuration error. But it's a pretty common one. More
common than not, I'd almost say.)
