UCP Advisor ships with a 60-day trial license that provides you access to all UCP Advisor functionality. After your trial period is over, you are prompted for a subscription license file for one of the available editions of the software.

You must import a license file to continue using UCP Advisor after the 60-day trial period expires. The availability of features is determined by the edition of your license. The Foundation Edition provides basic functionality while the Advanced Edition provides complete functionality. For a complete list of features provided by UCP Advisor, see "UCP Advisor features and functionality" in the Hitachi Unified Compute Platform (UCP) Advisor Administration Guide.
