I actually just did this moments ago (from a single Gentoo box to a pair
of load-balanced Solaris boxes).  I just used the built-in clustering to
replicate the database to the new servers.  You can then cut the DNS
over and users will hit the new box, and you don't even have to request
for users to reconnect, just wait for them to log off and log back in
and they will hit the new server(s).
