I have a 6.5 VCenter instance with 2 clusters in a DataCenter.  The 6.5 instance is comprised of the VCA and an External PSC.  Cluster 1, which currently contains and hosts the VCA/PSC was the "original" cluster with 3 hosts, and all VM's have been migrated to Cluster 2, which also has 3 hosts in it.  So now all "regular" VM's have been moved and are running in Cluster 2, with the exception of VCA/PSC.

Cluster 1 hosts have shared SAS storage while Cluster 2 hosts have iSCSI shared storage.

I now need to move the VCA/PSC instances from the Cluster 1 host to a host on Cluster 2, so its both a host and storage change.

Once this is done, Cluster 1, its hosts and shared storage will be removed and decommissioned from VCenter.

What's the bet way to accomplish this?  I have looked at article 2058684, but I don't know that it addresses the move from the shared storage on Cluster 1 to the shared storage on Cluster 2.
