While planning to migrate your Patch Manager Plus Server, data loss becomes a threatening concern. This document will provide you the steps to migrate your Patch Manager Plus server without losing any data.
Agent contacts the server using the following details of the machine in which server is installed:

Note: Do not install an EXE in the new computer; you should only copy the installation directory to the new computer.

How do I know if the migration process is complete?
To ensure that all the agents are migrated to the new server, Check the "Last contact time" column in SoM page. (If you are not seeing this column, choose to view from the Column Chooser). The last contact time must be after the server migration has been enabled.
When Should I stop the Old Server?
Once all the agents starts reporting to the new server, you can stop and uninstall the Patch Manager Plus server at the previous installation.
