Today we are using an external MSSQL database for our regular vCenter server. vCSA has an internal database of different type. If I decided to upgrade vCenter and in the process change to vCSA from a regular vCenter server, would I need to migrate the data from the MSSQL server or should I go for a clean install?

You would need to perform a clean install, as vCSA uses an Embedded vPostgres DB.

There are discussions, about supported SQL externally for vCSA see here:-

If this was developed, you could leave your SQL DB in place.
