Move VMware vCetner Server Appliance to Nutanix Cluster

I have two clusters managed by a vCenter Server Appliance (v7.0). One of those clusters is a Nutanix cluster. All hosts in all clusters are running ESXi 6.5. There is no storage shared between the clusters. What is the best and easiest way to migrate the vCenter Appliance to the Nutanix cluster. I’m already configured to move other VMs using Enhanced Shared-Nothing vMotion and that is working fine. Can I use the same method to live migrate the vCenter Appliance to the Nutanix cluster? If possible to live migrate, should I set DRS to manual and disable HA on all clusters before live migrating the vCenter Appliance?

Here someone asked the same question (although not running Nutanix but that is irrelevant)
