Currently, I have two Windows 2003 terminal servers, one of which also acts as the licensing server.  I have 160 User CALS installed.

Both of these servers are being retired and are going to be replaced with three Win2008r2 terminal servers.  One of which will be the new licensing server.

My question is, what is the path of moving the 160 CALs off of the Win2k3 licensing server to the new Win2k8 licensing server?  Now, before everyone starts yelling at me that I need to buy new CALs, the CALs installed are v 2008.
