ISE version 1.2 licensing question

I have the following scenarios:

iseA is the Primnary Admin/MNT/

iseB is the Secondary Admin/MNT

iseC is the PSN

iseD is the PSN

I use iseA serial number to get the license from Cisco licensing for base and advanced features,

Now iseA is dead and requires RMA. 

I promoted iseB to be primary Admin/MNT, and de-register from iseA from the cluster,

I replaced iseA with a new appliance from Cisco and name it iseA with the same ISE 1.2 and put it back into the cluster.  I plan on keeping iseB Primary Admin/MNT and iseA Secondary Admin/MNT

Question:  What will happen to the license?  Does it mean I have to go to Cisco licensing and re-register for the license again because the license for iseB is no longer valid?

Please help.

ISE version 1.2 licensing question

Not at all.  You can go here: and migrate the existing license to the new hardware.  You have to log in with your Cisco ID, but it is a quick and painless process. 

Using the wizard is probably the easiest way to do it, and you will have your new license file quickly.
