you'd have issues. We'd need to know more about your setup, though.

I saw the message on the Solr list, and was going to send Rachid here,
because migrating the zookeeper database successfully to different
servers is something that you can help with better.

Here's the overall steps I'd use:

* Shut down all Solr processes.
* Migrate the zookeeper DB and start the new ensemble.
* Start each Solr server without the -DzkRun option and with a corrected
-DzkHost option.

The middle step is what you fine folks will need to help with.

Drawing from elsewhere on this thread ... what "history" would be lost? 
As far as I know, Solr only cares what's in the database at any given
moment ... but my understanding may be incomplete.

Because Solr includes version 3.4.6, adding/removing servers on the fly
isn't supported, which is why I thought a migration with downtime would
be the best option.
