Unity Failover Question

I am configuring 2 unity servers for vm only and have the primary server fully functional and I am in the process of configuring the integration on the second unity server, however I am trying to understand exactly what way it's going to work wrt licensing. I have a license for 96 ports and installed this on the primary server, however according to the installation guide you install the default license on the secondary server:

Install the default license file:

Browse to the CommServer\Licenses directory.

Double-click CiscoUnity50.lic.

This only includes a license for 2 ports. If I am to understand this, it would mean that if the primary was to fail the secondary server could only support 2 licenses, is this correct or am I completely missing something.

Thanks in advance
