How to update ONTAP Edge from evaluation version to license version

Does anyone know the proper want to update the evaluation environment into a license version? My customer purchase the full license, can he just replace the new license key with eval one? Will the inside feature license (e.g. CIFS, NFS, etc.) automatic update also? Any special procedure need to aware?

Re: How to update ONTAP Edge from evaluation version to license version

The Eval version is a special build.  The eval version reads its keys/settings from the ovf transport every time it boots, and it only accepts eval keys.  The eval also has a 2tb attached disk limit, defaults to vidconsole, and doesn't have serial ports.    You need to deploy a new Edge controller with the ontap-v installer.  Then you could either migrate the data, or treat it like a "headswap" and move the vmdk (maint mode, reassign disks, etc).
