installing new fresh vcenter server in live environment

I would like to reinstall Vcenter/license server on a new server, with a fresh new database.  I currently have 2 esxservers in a vcenter cluster with about 20 virtual machines all running live.

what i propose to do is, reinstall vcenter on new server with new database, remove esx servers from existing virtual center cluster, disable all vcenter services on old server, add esxserver's to new vcenter cluster, reconfigure from new.. done!

is it possible to do this?  especially the part about removing esx servers from a live cluster, will all the VM's still run?
