Deauthorize remaining license on 'parent' and authorize license on 'child'. On 'child' License Manager, authorize four of the five licenses per feature. Authorization completes successfully. Issue appears to be with the 'parent' License Manager since clearing the Trusted Storage on 'child' License Manager does not resolve the Issue. If licenses are authorized on 'parent’ License Manager in stages, each additional stage results in one less license being able to be transferred to the ‘child’ License Manager. For example: Authorize 2 licenses for each feature on 'parent' License Manager, then authorize an additional 3 of each feature on 'parent' License Manager. This will mean a total of 5 available licenses for each feature are on the ‘parent’ License Manager. The 'child' License Manger will only be able to authorize 3 (5-2=3) of each feature.
