Having done step 1 now I am trying to move my VSRs to the ServerIron and I do not understand how to do this. The NAS config contains the following:
/c/slb/virt 1/service 80
This is a so called virtual server router (VSR) - a VRRP instance with the same IP address as a virtual server.

A virtual server router is Nortels way to achieve a VIP failover together with the VRRP failover - it is basically linking the VIP to VRRP and creating a so called VSR as you have mentioned.
The ServerIron way is slightly different - please have a look at the following document and check the chapter talking about Symmetric SLB. You need to create so called VIP groups (vip-group) and it is possible to bind all IPs (VIPs) in a VIP group to a given VRRP instance:
server virtual vs100 x.y.z.100
bind http proxy1 http proxy2 http proxy3 http proxy4 http
server vip-group 1
interface ve 1
ip address x.y.z.2 255.255.255.0
ip vrrp-extended vrid 1
backup priority 109 track-priority 10
track-port e 1
track-port e 2
This is going to link VIP x.y.z.100 to the VRRP instance with VRID 1 (bound to VE 1).
