When you install a license key, it is also enabled. The functionality for the software that you installed is available in Device Manager - Storage Navigator.

The license key can be disabled. This allows you to conserve time on a term key, for example. If you have a 365-day term key for a software product, the license server starts the count the day you install the key. However, you may not use the license immediately, in which case you can disable the key. Disabling stops the count. You re-enable the key when you become ready to use it.
