Terminal Services licensing - changing installed licenses

How can you move or remove terminal services CALs from a licensing server?

A number of CALs are installed on a licensing server. These are incorrect (don't knwo who got them from where!) and should not have been installed/activated here. I need to remove the installed CALs and add the correct licenses.

Is it possible to do, short of deactivating the server and then reactivating the server? Does deactivating the server remove the currently installed licenses, or will these still be there when it is activated again?

Do I have to uninstall licensing completely to get rid of these?
