Hello all. I currently have a 5.0.3 in HA mode with 1 active and 1 passive node. I also have two BAS nodes. We are moving to a new data center and I need to have BB moved before the actual weekend of the data center move. Trying to get some ideas on how to do this. My thought is to uninstall my current passive HA node, then add a new BAS server and a new HA passive node in the new data center, then failing the HA over to the passive node, which will be in the new data center. The new data center will be on a different IP subnet but will have full connectivity back to the existing data center. We will be moving the SQL DB to a new SQL server in the new data center. Does this sound logical? Thanks for any input.

Fail over to new hardware would be best.
Also Move SQL first if you can, It will just make it easier in the end.
Perform a Knife-edge cutover, look at HA fail over part
