ePO 4.5 to 4.6

This is my first post.

I know this has been done to death but I need assistance on migrating/transferring to a new ePO environment.

At present I have ePO 4.5 on a w2k3 SP2 (32 Bit) server linked to a SQL2005 DB on another w2k3 SP2 server.

I have built a new w2k8 R2 SP1 (64 Bit) server and have installed ePO 4.6.1 and SQL 2008 R2.

My query is can I upgrade the ePO 4.5 server to 4.6 and then register this server on the other ePO 4.6 server and then transfer the systems over...

Is this possible?

I have read I can export many setting from the old system and import them into the new system.

Once the systems are transferred would the clients then start talking to the new environment thus I would not have to upgrade the agents...?

I'm trying to avoid doing KB66616 and KB71078.

Any recommendations would be greatly received.

Kind Regards
