What happens to Centrally managed license keys when controller needs to be replaced?

QuestionWhat happens to Centrally managed license keys when controller needs to be replaced?

 

Code 6.3 and above supports this new feature

Centralized licensing simplifies licensing management for users. Licenses can be installed on any controller and shared by all the controllers.
One controller is the designated license server which serves as a consolidated database of the licenses for all the controllers on the network.
 
Replacing a License server Controller:-
If the controller acting as a license server needs to be replaced, the keys installed on the previous license server will need to be regenerated and added to the new license server. 
 
Replacing the Client controller:-
The license keys installed on the client will need to be regenerated.  The license server will keep the limits sent by the client for 30 days. After 30 days it will remove the license limits sent by the client. When the client controller is replaced after an RMA within 30 days, the capacity of the network would be more since the old limits from the client will continue to be cached.
