Is it straight forward? What problems if any would there be for users using TortoiseSVN in
connecting to the new server?

Depends on how you do backups. If there is any significant chance that
your dead host has revisions that are not in your backup, you are in
danger of a "split-brain" scenario, and should change the UUID of the
restored copy and force people to reset their checkouts.
