Installation / Products out of Maintenance

I think the answer to this question is going to be yes you can but just want to verify.

We are going to build a new SolarWinds server.

We are considering making a copy of the existing database and connecting the new server to the database copy to keep alerts, historical info, etc.  The current production server will remain in effect until the new server is ready for production.

We have a number of products where the maintenance may or will expire before we finish building and testing the new server.

My question is, I can still install all of the products that we want to use, test the server, true up the maintenance, and then apply the licenses to the server once the maintenance is in effect, correct?
