Concerns with moving exclusive data to a new console

I plan to move my Xbox LIVE profile with all my saves and content with a thumb drive from one console to my new one. My concern is when I move my profile with a thumb drive, will I still have access to all my pre-order content (DLC) for Halo 4? The reason I ask is because it's not like I can go to the marketplace and download it all again. I don't want to move my profile unless I know my exclusive content will move also. Can someone tell me how all this works?

Exclusive content can always be redownloaded from your download history - support.xbox.com/.../download-content-history

So you shouldn't have any problem.

After I move my profile to the thumb drive will the download history still exist on my new console? I'm under the assumption that the new console will be unaware of my previous downloads.

Your download history is connected to your account, not the console. So it's saved on the Xbox servers. The servers track everything on your account except game saves. So anything else can be recovered.

I read something about transferring licenses from one console to another for them to work on the new one. Is that something I'll have to do as well or can I leave all the licenses on the old console?

If you leave the licenses on the old console, then you can only use them on the new with the account they are registered to while connected online.

So just to make sure I understand this, if I move my stuff off the old xbox onto my new one while connected online, as long as I DON'T transfer my licenses to the new one I can use my content on the new xbox and the old profiles can still use the my same content on the old xbox?

Yes, so long as you did not start the License Transfer process.
