Can I move another AP into the free AP Hive?

We have some people who got free AP's because they attended a webinar, one of them got a AP230 and has been having a good play but we have also lent them an AP130 which Aerohive have set up on a separate Hive with temporary license.

I would really like both AP's to be in the same Hive and I noticed that the free Hive actually came with a 5 device license, so can I move the AP130 into the same Hive as the AP230? Is it just a case of deleting the AP130 from the eval Hive and adding its serial number into the free Hive and letting the AP130 find the free Hive via the redirector ?

This is all on standard HMOL, no NG involved here.

I can only answer technically and definitely not from a licensing perspective etc., but... yes, if you remove the AP from one and add its serial to the other, it will move over.

I would recommend ensuring that the AP is online when you remove it, electing to restore it factory defaults by removing its configuration.
