We are moving our management server to a new, faster machine and upgrading to version 6.2 at the same time. The old machine is scheduled to be decommissioned at some point. Is there a quick way to move currently-managed hosts to the new server? Both the name and the IP address are different. Currently we are just creating new ICBs to move everything over, but there has to be a better way. (We're also taking this opportunity to clean up some things we didn't get quite right the first time.)

We ended up doing this by hand, but it was less painful than I thought...just created the appropriate ICBs and fired them out via scpg3, then went back through the list of hosts, connecting to each, su'ing to root, and moving the ICB to the proper location. Lots of copy/pasting commands! The old server has been disconnected for weeks now and the machine is was running on is going to be decommissioned soon (which is why we needed to move the server).
