Netware 6.5 licensing

I have two questions.

1. We recently purchased an academic license agreement for OES and I have
downloaded and installed the license file. I still have the other two
license files in the tree because servers are still listed under them. Is
it as simple as removing those serial numbers and the servers will search
out a different one to attach to?

2. We also have several (96) 5 user Netware 6.5 user licenses. We do not
have 480 users that attach to our servers so it is a mystery to me why we
would have several that say there are 6 units used when I do a serial
number report from iManager. Maybe this is an unnecessary question as the
ALA is unlimited users. If this is true can I just remove those license
files and be ok?

I appreciate any assistance that can be given.

Once the ALA server license is in place remove the other licenses. You
will have to either restart the server so it grabs the new server
license or unload and reload ds.

Do NOT assign the server license to any server!

Once this is done the user licenses will not be needed.

Neither is necessary. The servers will aqcuire the new licenses
automatically as soon as the old ones are removed.

Wasn't sure how fast that would happen and wanted to make sure it
happened.

Especially to start the troubleshooting if the MLA got assigned to a
server, etc.
