I'm looking to purchase a new dedicated server and have XenServer 6.0 installed. There is an option to include XenServer 6.0 Advanced which has some additional features. However we don't need those additional features for a few months.

Is "Advanced" something you can add-on without a complete re-install of XenServer or must it be part of the original installation of XenServer?

Editions have to do with licenses only and the licenses can be applied and changed late without reinstall, if you initially only installed the free license.

this was confirmed by my SoftLayer sales guy as well. – Brian Boatright May 24 '12 at 3:19
