Subscription Management query; "What will happen if ESX host will be replaced with another on different hardware?"

Solution Unverified - Updated -


We have setup as described on:

I.e. Linux VMs are registered and subscribed as virtual machines, hypervisor is also subscribed with physical license.

What will happen if we are going to replace ESX host with another on different hardware?
Should we un-subscribe/un-register and register all VM's again after upgrade on this particular host?
Or is it enough to unregister ESXi host and register new one ?
Will virt-who daemon catch up all changes automatically ?
