Looks right. The license is for all controllers on that server and shouldn't expire. Only the demonstration licenses expire. (You can get a temporary license for a limited time to test whether you want the additional features.)

Howdy

I've tried to find the answer to 2 questions:

   Does the activation of Smart Array Advanced Pack require the operating system (in this case, W28R2) to be power cycled ?

   If we already have a single SAS cable attached, can we add a second cable (dual channel available) before/after the SAAP activation, and have the current disks preserved ?

Thanks
