We have a pretty small production environment, with a single ZCM 10.3 server. The server is currently running as a XEN virtual machine. I want to move it over to VMWare on a different box.

I was thinking that I could just do an install of SLES 10.3 on the new VM, and then copy the var, etc and opt directories from the old box onto the new. Any feedback on this? Will it work? Should I first do an install of ZCM on the new box, just to make sure all package dependencies have been met?
