Migrating to a new Windows 2003 server box

I have SIM 5.2 installed and need to move it to a new server. I have installed SIM 5.3 on the new server. Can I export the server certificate from the old server and import it to the new server? Thanks in advance.

Thanks. I had read the document you mentioned, but I was not sure that simply importing the server certificate would work without doing any updates to the managed systems.
