I'm migrating a self contained (SQL Server Express, AF 2016, PI Archive 2016 all on same box) system from a physical box to a single virtual.

The new box will have a different IP and name.  There is plenty of advice on how this affects interface settings, but I find nothing on the server systems in this scenario.  Does this mean I can follow the standard of

Do a COPY type backup and xcopy the .dat files etc from PI\adm, P\bin,PI\dat etc?

Or is there a gotcha?


Any suggestions or re-assurances welcome.
