pfSense - VM to physical

Currently running pfSense in an overkill VM, on ESXi 6.7. I want to move off a VM and onto physical hardware, other than doing a backup of the config, and re-installing pfSense and restoring the config, is there anything I need to look for?

One thing, my LAN side is on a 10G link, so I’m assuming I’ll have to change the adaptor in console, to upload the config, and once its restored, change back to the 10G link.

Backup virtual one, load it on hardware, restore and match up network interface names.
