Found licensed USB Drive but empty - setup trial server - want to move license...

I feel like an idiot. So, I have a server I setup and dialed in with a unraid trial license. I thought I had my licensed thumb drive but I couldn't find it. Searched a bunch of drives and found one with the matching GUID. It is blank. I want to use a brand new flash drive. Is there anyway to do this? I contacted support but haven't heard back. So in summary:

1 - Licensed thumbdrive - BLANK

2 - Trial license thumbdrive - with server working the way I want it to

3 - Brand new good quality thumb drive not associated or black listed with unraid.

How do I get #3 thumb drive to be the licensed one and move the config over from #2 to #3?


Thank you in advance for trying to help me. Appreciate it.

Install Unraid on it and put the keyfile for the original licensed drive in the config directory. Once in Unraid it'll tell you there's a mismatch and allow you to transfer the license to that USB drive.

You cannot transfer trial licences to a new drive - you can only get a new trial licence for the new drive.
