Move server to new location

Hi,

Any suggestion how to move a Access Manager (appliance) cluster to new location?
Background, customer is moving there server environment to new hostning/operation partner and every server has to be a new install. So no moving of vmware images.
Will have a fiber connection between new and old site, both sites will be running in parallel for some time
My idea is to install new AM appliance server in new site and add them to existing cluster and then when everything is tested and working removing old servers from cluster.
Are there any drawbacks with that approach?
Anybody have a better way?

That's exactly what I what do and is the only supported way really

none, just follow the procedure to promote a secondary server to become the primary which can be a little involving so perhaps go through the steps in
a lab first

Nope
