There is no problem.
For Veeam it's irrelevant whether the vCenter is
an Appliance or installed on a Windows server.
Thank you for your reply :-).
I always though it was dependent on vCenter on the Microsoft Windows host. I though I read it somewhere, but must've been confused or misread it. I'm going to perform the migration next week, so hopefully all will go well!

1 Physical host running Microsoft Windows 2012 R2 with VMware vCenter and Veeam for backup;
Please note that such a configuration needs some planning/decisions.
The vCSA Migration Wizard will deploy th new vCSA Appliance on an ESXi host, migrate all vCenter data, assume the vCenter Server's identity, and finally shut down the source system! With Veeam Backup running on that host, that's likely not what you want.
In your case - with a small environment - you may consider to either do a clean, new installation of the vCSA, or reinstall the physical server after the migration, and setup Veeam backup again.
Thank you for your reply, but that's exactly what I want, because the server running Veeam / VMware vCenter will be replaced too :-) So VMware vCenter will me migrated to an appliance/ / virtual machine and the new backup server, will only be running Veeam, as it'll be a light and simple machine.
