    Thanks for your post.

    You need to follow below steps:

    1. Install the User interface and the server components on your new set of machines. More about installing here:

    Server Components: http://documentation.red-gate.com/displ ... r+instance
    2. Then you need to move the license: to move a serial number to a different computer
    To move a serial number to a different machine, deactivate the serial number on the old computer, then use it to activate the product on the new computer.
    To deactivate a serial number, on the Help menu, select Deactivate Serial Number. If this menu item is not available, use the deactivation tool.
    If you cannot deactivate a serial number, use the Request Extra Activations page to request more activations for your serial number. You will need to provide your serial number and the reason for the additional activations.

    Please let me know if above suggestion helps.
