Lync 2013 and Skype for Business OnPrem - Moving CMS

I have Lync 2013 and have collated Skype for Business in a different Pool. However, we are wanting to decommission Lync 2013 at another site but I need to move the original CMS located on a SQL server in the Lync 2013 Pool before I can decommission it. We have another SQL instance install as part of the SfB pool hosting archive data. My question is since both SQL DB's contain xds databases, would moving the CMS of the Lync 2013 install corrupt the xds db of the SfB Pool?

Thank you!

You haven't followed the Migration documentation by MS? You should be able to move the CMS from SKype for business Front end server.

The cmdlet Move-CsManagementServer should move the CMS to the new SfB FE server .. but you should run it on the SfB FE Server not Lync.

Addendum:

After running Move-CsManagementServer  -Whatif  command I get the error   "Cannot move Central Management Server. The new Central Management Store located at  Skype_SQL01.domain.org is not accessible."

I was trying to move the CMS from Lync2013_SQL01.domain.org to Skpye_SQL01.domain.org.

Any thoughts?

Yes, I did follow the MS documentation. However, in preparing SQL for the move, I ran across issues. However, our DB admin helped me resolve that issue and all went well.
