In the existing scenario, single SM210 is running on 77.30 managing two 13500 gateways in cluster. I am planning to move the SM210 to a VM management and later shutdown the SM210. Please advise if there would be a downtime in migrating 210 management to a VM management. I wish to load the VM SMS with 80.10.


So the plan would be to keep the same IP(of SM210) and hostname to the new VM SMS and using migrate export tool, to load the existing policies and objects from SM210 to the new VM that would be running on 80.10.

Would I need to re-establish the SIC. While pushing the policy again from teh new VM SMS to teh gateways, will it create any downtime.


While using the migrate export tool, what are the configuration that I would miss.(say for eg OPSEC etc...)
