Can Network license server have 2 Ansys licenses on it?

I have a student group that appled for and received an Ansys license for software they use and they were sent a lic file that is supposed to be applied to our network server. This is a change from previous years and I want to confirm before I install this lic file. Can someonehelp me confirm that this is all correct?

    @mperriello The license server can have 2 licenses, they will be served under the same installation of the license manager. You must ensure that the ISSUED date is the same on both license files, otherwise SUPERSEDE will come into play. SUPERSEDE will cause any common INCREMENTs between the 2 licenses to only run the newest ISSUED copy, SUPERSEDE-ing the older. By ensuring the ISSUED date is the same, SUPERSEDE is not involved. If the date is not the same, please contact your ANSYS Account Manager to request each license be reissued on the same day.

    Thank you,
