| | Moving licenses from one BES to another BES

I need some advice on licenses migration.
I have 2 BES servers version 5.
The first is connected to an Exchange 2003 server. For various reasons I could not update it to make it compatible with our new Exchange 2010 server.
So I installed a second BES 5 identical to the first but with a Mapi/Cdo compatible with Exchange 2010.
The second server uses temporary licenses.
Then I migrated the mailboxes of my BB users from Exch2003 to Exch2010 and migrated the BES accounts using the BlackBerry Enterprise Transporter.
Now I want to move the first server’s permanent licenses to the second BES server that was configured with temporary licenses.
Essentially, this is what I plan :
On the first server :
- Delete the CAL
- Stop the BES services and/or shutdown the server permanently.
Then on the second server :
- Change the temporary SRP ID and SRP Auth with the permanent ones
- Wait 4 hours (or not?) for the Blackberrys to receive the new SRP
- Replace the temporary CALs with the permanent ones
So I read that we cannot use perm CAL with temp SRP.
And also we cannot remove the last CAL, we must edit it to change it for a perm CAL.
But will I be able to change the temp SRP with the perm SRP while I still have a temporary CAL?
