Safest and Most Efficient Way of Moving Terminal Services CALs from Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition to WIndows Server 2008 Enterprise Server

Dear experts,

I have a task to move existing terminal services CALs from a Windows Server 2003 (Standard Edition) license server to an existing Windows Server 2008 Enterprise.

I saw this knowledgebase online --> http://support.microsoft.com/kb/953918 ...but would like to hear your expert opinion and advises as I don't want surprises because this is my first time to do it. Also are there any backup steps just in case I need to revert back?

Specs:
Need to Retire Server 2003 Licensing Server and has:
-- existing windows 2000 server terminal services cal token (per device) --> unlimited
-- temporary licenses for windows server 2003 - terminal server per device --> all used up
-- windows server 2003 --> volume license total 250, available 245
-- windows server 2003 --> volume license total 10, all used up

Moving onto existing 2008 Licensing Server and has:
-- existing windows 2000 server terminal services cal token (per device) --> unlimited
-- temporary licenses for windows server 2003 - terminal server per device --> all used up
-- windows server 2008 per device --> volume license total 20, available 20
-- windows server 2008 per device --> volume license total 10, available 10
-- windows server 2008 per device --> volume license total 1250, available 70

Thank you!

That document says it all.  It really is easy to do.  MS Clearinghouse is very helpful in these situations.

I'm thinking of backing up the old one before I move to the new one. The knowledgebase is saying to back up the system state of the old machine plus the database of the terminal server. Would you happen to know what folder location this is actually located at? Thank you.

The default location for the license server database is systemroot\System32\LServer.
