Windows vCenter 6.5 migrate to VCSA

Hi Everyone, I've been asked by a customer to review their VMware environment and have a few recommendations for them. One of which is to use VCSA as opposed to windows. However, they've already implemented vCenter 6.5 on Windows with an embedded DB. Unfortunately, the migration wizard doesn't support migrating from Windows vC 6.5 to VCSA.

I expect that if we are to move to VCSA then it's going to need a new installation and new configuration rather than a migration, but is anyone aware of a more seamless process?

Thanks in advance.
