New KMS Host Key - Activation windows server 2022

Hello Team,

I have a question, we will activate windows server 2022 in our network on our existing KMS server.

I will need to install the new KMS host key on the server that will be used to activate windows server 2022, but first i have to remove the old KMS host key using slmgr /upk correct?

Is there any other actions that i will need to take in considerations?
