Have a look at VMware KBs. It not supported to migrate from Windows vCentre to VCSA at the same version.

Supported only if the VCSA will be higher version.  Follow the VMware guidance but ensure the VCSA build you deploy is on the SimpliVity interop matrix.

If it's a simple deployment then the easiest path is just to deploy a new VCSA with new SSO domain and add your hosts to the new VCSA inventory.

Hello @Major88,

 

When moving the hosts to the new vCenter make sure that you contact Simplivity support to assist you moving the OmniStack controllers to the new VCSA as well. This needs to be done so the new VCSA is aware of them.
