Need to move SIM to a new server


Need to move SIM to a new server

I need a way to migrate the security settings for the SIM certifficate to a new server. Last time I did this I spent 3 days re-doing the certifficates on all the servers.

The server that runs SIM is going away and I am moving SIM to a new blade server.
My problem is that my SIM database is on a seperate SQL server and I want to keep the same database. I can install on the new balde and point at the existing database, but I think I will have to take the current SIM off line to do that.

How can I migrate the Security Certificate information since I cant have both SIM servers up at the same time because of the common database?
