SCCM 2012 Server migration planning. RFC - Especially ref. IP change

I have been tasked to migrate a Server 2012 R2 box running SCCM 2012 server to a new HyperV cluster\server in a different location.

Roles on this server:
System Center 2012 Configuration Manager
IIS
WDS - Windows Deployment Services.
WSUS

I am planning to shutdown server and use AzCopy to migrate the VHD, power up and set new IP address and update DNS Records.

Im wondering if anyone has any advice on this?. As far as I can tell the SCCM only refers to Hostname\FQDN and no IP addresses exist in the config.

Does any one have any advice, things to check in advance, issues to watch out for during the migration.

Many thanks

Just export the virtual machine and import it to a new cluster.

Then change the IP and run IPCONFIG /REGISTERDNS

Thats all.

Hi,

CM doesn't care about the IP of the host. As it's inside a VM anyway, you can swap hosts without blinking,
