Transfer BES License?

We use BES for Exchange at our company and we purchased another company that uses BES for Lotus.  I was curious if anyone knows if I could import their user licenses into our system or if the licenses are bound by the server the support?


Thanks for any help

BES CALs can be transferred between BES Domains (regardless of mail platform).  Simply open the console in Domain A, copy out what you want to remove, remove the key from Domain A, open the console in Domain B, and paste in the key.


License tranferred.


The only thing you need to watch for is your TSupport contract which is bound to the # of servers and # of CALs; so make sure this all adds up properly too.
