USB Licence Swap

Hello, I've got a quick key replacement question.

 

USB A has a plus key registered (This usb device is better quality and tiny)

USB B has a pro key registered (This usb device is old and large)

USB C is new (This usb device is better quality but still large)

 

I want to move the pro license from USB B to USB A, so I copy over the key file, reboot, go to the registration key which now detects an invalid key registration, and click replace.  A new link is sent for the new key, and this should update USB A with the pro license and USB B GUID is now blacklisted from registration.

 

Next, I move the plus key to USB C and follow the same procedure, however in the process will this blacklist USB A's GUID making the pro license i just moved there invalid?

That won't work because it will detect GUID for USB A is already in use.

What about if I move USB A to USB C first?  That will blacklist USB A though, and I assume moving the key from USB B to USB A after would fail because of that blacklisting?

Correct.
