Moving VM Domain Controller to new host

Hi all,

I have one VM domain controller in one ESXi host and I'm going to move it to the new physical host.
I will use vcenter cold migration feature because there is no shared storage.
Should I be worried about any issue?
Cold migration should be fine.

I think it should be fine , just backup and add a new dc to your exiting network before.

I suggest you to add another dc , transfer all roles,  make sure everythingworks, and then you can demote the older one.

COLD Migration is fine, just make sure you advise users, as turning off your DC will have no authentication, and make sure at some point, you create a second Domain Controller, for some resilience.
