After it boots back up, apply the new eval Activation Key. All user configurations will be lost unless steps are taken to save them before the factory reset and restore them afterwards - How to Remove Licenses from an IdentiFi Wireless Controller.
Software version 09.xx and later for High Availability (HA) paired controllers will share the total AP capacity licensing count
Software version 08.xx and prior does not share the total AP capacity licensing count
