VM downgrade and FreePBX activation

I want to downgrade our Vultr VPS but they don’t allow downgrades so I need to make a backup, destroy the VPS and get a new one on the same server. We can keep the same IP but the machine ID or hardware ID might change ao I am afraid we’ll lose the FreePBX deployment activation. Is there any way to avoid that. I have already used up most of my Zend resets when we had to rebuild the server after it crashed.

There have been several questions about this, and the answer seems to be “Yeah, but you need human intervention from Sangoma”. If you don’t get a “I’m from Sangoma and I’m here to help” note shortly, submit a ticket on the Issues link and warn them about what you are about to do. They may be able to “preload” another reset for you.
