What are the limitations in moving a remote exchange server license from one server to another? What if the old server explodes... then do I have to call Symantec to "get back" the license to install on the new server?

I was attempting to test this in version 11d which i have at another location, but when i pick the install remote agent option, then right click on the windows remote agents  to "add remote computer" the option to "remove remote computer" is not available, it's greyed out.

I believe that Symantec does not enforce the number of agents you have licensed or installed, only the licensed feature. This means that you _technically_ can install the remote agent on as many systems as you like. So if you want to move a remote agent from one server to another, simply install it on the new one and uninstall it on the old one.
