I've got to move two server into new server with Virtualisation for backup propose and stuff...

One will stay in the same datacenter and will keep the same IP. This one should be ok ?

The other one will move from an other datacenter. How to I upgrade the IP or the License file ? I'll ask my new datacenter to sell me an other one, but I don't want to re-install cPanel. It's possible ?

Thanks !

Licensing is completely independent of cPanel installations. You can change a server's IP address and the IP on the license accordingly without needing to re-install cPanel/WHM.

If you are acquiring your licensing via your data center or a cPanel distributor, this question is better addressed with them.
