Do I need to re-install or upgrade evaluation Red Hat middleware products after purchasing subscriptions?

  • We have been using evaluation copies of the EAP 5.1 and JBOSS developer studio 4.0 on the developer stations. Our support agreements are now in place. Do we need to reinstall everything on our machine or can we upgrade in place?
  • What if we choose to install a trial version of JBoss Application Server on our server and latter we purchase the license do we need to re-install JBoss application server or we only need to update the license ?
