Just wondering if I can use the backup/restore method to configure a new VE?

I have a virtual F5 LTM that Support is telling me is at "end of life", and will require me to purchase a new license for a new virtual setup. My question is this... Can I just spin up a new virtual, apply the new license, and then restore the backup.ucs file from the old unit to the new one? If not what is the preferred method to configure the new F5 and make it identical to the older one?


I have tried this method, however it looks like it is showing license out of date, so I have scratched everything and began again from the beginning.


Thank you,
