Switching Checkpoint License in AWS

Hello,

I have deployed CP instances in AWS Cloud using PAYG licenses... now  i want to switch licensing to BYOL ..

Is there a way to switch these licenses without reinstalling the instances ?

I believe that you will need to do a new deployment to move to a BYOL deployment as is a specific question when doing a deployment.

Even if you were to change the licenses on the Check Point instance, you'd still be charged by AWS as the AMI you're using is tagged as PAYG.
This requires a reinstall with the BYOL AMI.

ok..so tht means i have to delete the PAYG instance and recreate it as BYOL...
