Upgrading Hikvision 4200 To Milestone VMS - Any Issues To Look For?

I have estimated for a 22 channel Hik camera software upgrade to Milestone, I plan to use 2 Dahua,16 channel POE encoders, re use the server running iVMS4200 and use Milestone Express for channel licences.

Let me know if I'm walking into a horror show...
