The steps you have stated will work fine.
This will reduce the number of cores so that your server will 'accept' the Core license
All the best
Also, it may be worth just checking on the number of Tableau components are currently running on the server (ie number of vizql, backgrounder, etc)
You may need to lower some of them as you are decreasing the number of cores from 12 to 8. (depending on your current setup)
Good call. I will need to reduce the VizQL processes for certain.
