Move support license from one Linux server to new server

We have 6 Linux servers with support activated on all servers. Out of the 6 servers 2 are test servers.
I bought 4 new servers and installed new version of Linux and I want to deactivate  support license from the 2 test servers and activate in 2 new servers.
How to use the same license and activate support in the new servers? We no longer need the old test servers.

Maybe you're running RHEL (RedHat) which requires some form of license.

Without knowing more about your exact Distro + what licensing might apply, no guess about how to answer your question.

Tip: Better to use a Distro like Ubuntu, where no licensing applies.

Note: For best answers provide details about the Distro you're using.

Yes you are right

It's been a while for me, but you must Log in to the RHEL website with your licensing account.  You should be able to remove entitlements from the existing servers and free them up.  Then you can log in on the new servers and assign the licenses.
