Default Can i take licenses from one BES and put them on another ?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Guys,
My company just purchased another company. We presently have a BES with 150 users, the other company has a BES too with 50 users. ( both BES are presently on a different domain )

My question is , I plan on shutting down their BES and moving all of their users on our main BES. However i would like to know if their is a way to Export their 50 licences and install them on our BES since theirs has already been purchased.

Thanks

Jay

If they are the same version yes. Just right click on them and select Copy Key and paste it to a text file and then Copy/paste them back to a new server.

That would be a yes.
Just go to license management and copy all the licenses - once you have added them to the other BES, just remove then.

We are doing the exact same thing here(except my licenses are being taken). I will caution you that if you have content protection enabled on the devices you are moving, you will need to disable that setting on the BES and manually disable it on the device before wiping and re-activating on the new BES. Otherwise, we have been unable to switch the devices to the new server.
