We are planning to migrate barracuda email security virtual appliance running on vmware 5.5 to a new location with vmware 6. Can we use vmware vcenter converter?
 
our plan:
turning off virtual appliance on old location
migration through vmware converter to the new host
turn on migrated appliance on the new location and configure ip address from the subnet in a new location
 
Is there a reason this won't work? 
It is necessary to keep the mac address from old appliance or something to make the license work?
Or copying only virtual machine files and register vmx file on vsphere invertory?
 
Thanks all
Laco
