Rate Limit raised, but only for one acme account, move accounts?

Due to several circumstances beyond my control, I needed to issue (too) many certificates for our colostate.edu. I requested a rate increase for my ACME account, and it was granted to me. (we’re a fairly large university with a lot of domains). I note that it was only for one ACME account, which was only for one of my servers (out of 8 or so). I’m hoping I can copy the account directory (/etc/letsencrypt/account///directory//.json from the account that got the rate bump to the others, but I’m guessing bad things would happen if I did that without talking through the ramifications.

My domain is:

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):
Ubuntu 16.04 and 18.04

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot):
certbot 0.31.0

I only have one server with my account, but I don’t see an issue with copying the account directory as long as you make absolutely sure the permissions are correct after copying and that during copying the account key stays secure.
