New AP, had bad license key (had been used by somebody else?,) but support got me going with a temporary key.  I now have a new key from Sales which I need to apply.   Temp key has 12 days remaining.  

I can't see where it is I plug in the new key.

off phone with support.  Found how to apply, and learned how keys are (not) assigned to aps.
1. to put key into HMNG - right-click name, then global settings, then license mgmt.  add key there.
2. keys not assigned to APs - they go into pool.  I only have one AP, and have in pool a temp license and now a three year license.  Hopefully, my ap does not go down when temp license expires, but will find out

Just an FYI here Brad.  If your license expires, your AP will not "go down" and will continue to work.  I believe you'd simple lose access to the HMOL GUI to manage/configure/update it and would have to make changes via console/SSH as your license file grants you support and access to the HMOL portal and not necessarily functionality of the hardware.
