ABOUT

When a media server has been decommissioned because it is no longer required or it was replaced by a new media server, it is not recommended to keep devices active on that media server.  You can make the media server "Historical" which will free up all active licenses for devices associated with it.  Historical telephone data will be retained for reporting purposes but no new data will be collected.

This article explains how to mark a media server as historical.
