Confirm the following before moving your DCS Manager:
-Is the IP of the manager changing?
-Is the FQDN changing?
(If these are changing, you'll need to push out new agent-certs and possibly import a new UMC cert)

1. Make a backup of the DCS Manager files, and the Database, as noted in the following KB article. 

2. Install a Tomcat Only Manager on the server you are moving the Manager to.

3. Change the registry key from Tomcat only to Production

4. Create new agent-cert.ssl if necessary and point your agents to the new manager.

sisipsconfig -host MGTSERVER1,MGTSERVER2
sisipsconfig -h MGTSERVER1,MGTSERVER2

You can use the Data Center Security Server Certificate utility to create a new agent-cert.ssl
