TS CAL licensing

hi,

We have a new 2003 server running win2k3 licencing service and also installed the 2000 licences.  however, the old/current windows 2000 terminal server has yet to be upgraded so the 2000 licences still apply at the moment.
The new 2003 licencing server appears to be working correctly as 2x new TS clients that have successfuilly connected to the 2000 TS and 2x new licences are shown on the new TS licencing server.
Question is, once we upgrade the 2k TS box to 2k3, a) will the existing clients automatically move over to the new 2003 TS licence and b) can we move over the existing 2k TS cals from the old TS licencing server to the new 2k3 licencing server, just in case?  i believe the licencing is held in LSERVER folder.

Important: A Microsoft Windows 2000 license server cannot provide licenses to a Windows Server 2003 Terminal Server. However, a Windows Server 2003 license server can provide licenses to both Windows Server 2003 and Windows 2000 Terminal Server and, therefore, can support a mixed environment consisting of both Windows 2000 Terminal Server and Windows Server 2003 Terminal Server.
Although Terminal Server attempts to detect a license server automatically, you may want to explicitly specify the license server your Terminal Server connects to. We strongly recommend that you follow the directions in the Knowledge Base article, How to Override the License Server Discovery Process in Windows Server, which explains how to configure a Terminal Server to access a specific license server. This procedure requires modifying a registry key to ensure that the terminal server detects the license server.
Caution: Incorrectly editing the registry may severely damage your system. Before making changes to the registry, you should back up any valued data on the computer.
Important: Even if you install the Terminal Server and Terminal Server Licensing on the same computer, the servers may not detect each other. In this situation, be sure to follow the directions in the Knowledge Base article,
