New Console DRM Question

I have just purchased a new console.  I have already used my data transfer cable to move over all my datat. 

I was just getting ready to use the DRM tool to move over the rights to the things I've purchased on XBL and had a question I'm hoping someone can clear up.  Before I use the DRM, do I need to register the new console's serial number on my Xbox.com account?

You don't have to register the console before running the license transfer tool, so feel free to get that transfer out of the way.

I'd suggest registering the serial number in the event of warranty questions, get them out of the way before it's needed. It is, however, not needed for the license transfer.

OK.  One other question.  If I do not register the new console, how does the DRM tool on Xbox.com know the new console ID and hence what console the right need to be transferred to?

Just want to make sure I do this right the first time around.

Once you transfer the license your your gametag and rights will all be on that new console. It will then be registered with Microsoft.

So the new console ID will automatically show up on my Xbox.com account once I use the DRM to move over the content without me having to do any type of registering of the new console?

It did for me when I did the same thing last year. You can always look here myservice.xbox.com/.../consolemanager.aspx  If for some reason it does not move over this will also take you to the register page.
