Move VCSA to new host

We have an old physical host with vmware 5.5 essentials.  There are 9 servers running, one of which is VCSA.  We have connected a new host, shut down 8 servers and moved them to the new host and all works fine.  How do I move the VCSA while its running considering I don't have vmotion?

Or do I need to move it at all? Can I just setup a new one?

To move this last VM, you will need to Power Off, Export and Import into the new host.

then power up, and all will be well.

this works with all host versions.
