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?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.
