Actually - there are some files that you may want to copy over - on the central
manager, you probably want to save your Accountant.log and Accountantnew.log in
the $(SPOOL) directory on your central manager.
These are the files where the priority of the all of currently running users
are found. There's nothing specific in those files about what central
manager they came from, so the easiest way to migrate is to shut down the
old CM, copy those files to the new CM, and then turn the new CM.
If you're not worried about user priorities, you don't need to copy them
to the new machine. If you don't copy them, there may be a bit of preemption
in your pool for the first few rounds of matchmaking as the negoitiator
tries to figure out what's going on.
