UC 8.5 Snapshot question

We have a customer waiting for their UCS C series (210 M2 I believe) servers to  arrive, since it is going to take more time to ship in the interim local Cisco  has offered two loaner servers to do the migration and move all UC products  later when they get their original servers.

My concern is one of the engineers  suggested to take a snapshot of all the UC applications running on the loaner  UCS C servers and migrate over to new UCS servers. What I have been told in all  Cisco trainings I have attended is we can't take a snapshot of any UC  application running on VMware or on any server and migrate over to other virutal  servers like we can do on any other servers/applications in virtual environment. 

Now my question is can we really take a snapshot of any UC products and  install/migrate on new Virtual servers? If we can will there be an licensing issues on  this ?

UC products that is going to run on UCS servers are

CUCM  version 8.5 (1 PUb and 2 sub nodes)

Unity Connection 8.5 (Primary and  failover)

Emergency responder 8.5

UCCX 8.5 (Primary and failover)
