Migration of Veeam VM and vCenter VM

I have the last two VM's to migrate to a new Host.

1. Is there anything I need to consider with moving the vCenter vm to a new host (Usin Veeam quick migration)

2. I plan to use Veeam copy to copy the Veeam server to the new host - then power-off the original, then power on the copy on the new host - is this plan OK?

vCenter Server will go down for 1-2 minutes during the copy function. But nothing to worry about.

It will work.

1. But pls remember to add source and destination ESXi hosts to your Veeam infrastructure. And not use vCenter as source during quick migration.
2. Copy may not work as files will be open (Veeam VM will be running). I would suggest to replicate Veeam VM to destination host or backup and restore on new host. Then power down old Veeam and start restored VM on new host.

Did copy as suggested. However Veeam VM appeared to go off the air for a while during the final processes - which was a little stressing.
