3Par firmware update with the transition to the new licensing model

Имеется HPE 3PAR STORESERV 7200 2-NODE STORAGE BASE QR482A с дополнительной полкой M6710. Активировано 50 лицензий на дисковые слоты. (24 на голову, 24 на полку и две свободные). Также есть еще одна полка M6710. Прошивка головы 3.2.2. Планируется обновление прошивки до текущей версии.

Начиная с HPE 3PAR OS 3.3.1 при любом апгрейде железа или софта придется перейти на All-Inclusive модель лицензирования, основанную на массиве/полке, а не на количестве шпинделей. Цитата из документа: "When customers upgrade any hardware or software, HPE requires customers to switch to the new All-inclusive software licensing program. The new licensing

Что произойдет в нашем случае при обновлении версии до текущей? Что случится с лицензиями на диски(шпиндели)? Заработает ли вторая полка (куплена давно до появления данной модели лицензирования)?

HPE 3PAR STORESERV 7200 2-NODE STORAGE BASE QR482A with optional M6710 shelf available. 50 licenses for disk slots are activated. (24 per head, 24 per shelf and two free). There is also another shelf M6710. Head firmware 3.2.2. It is planned to update the firmware to the current version.

Quote from the doc: "When customers upgrade any hardware or software, HPE requires customers to switch to the new All-inclusive software licensing program. The new licensing

What happens in our case when we upgrade to the current version? What happens to disk licenses (spindles Will the second shelf work (purchased long before the appearance of this licensing model)?
