No; open ILM s/w and just move the license over to the physical iLok. You use the license asset you have now. That license asset is agnostic as to whether you're using iLok Cloud or a physical iLok dongle.

I much prefer a physical iLok.
Sometimes when installing a new plugin, the license ends up in the cloud.
Then it’s just a matter of time until I get a crash...
... that reminds me again, and makes me move all new licenses to a physical key.

I would prefer iLok host auth, but for some reason Avid does not support it.
