migrate array from trial usb to pro usb?

Recommended Posts

I was given a dl380 g9 from work. 2 cpus with 10 core and 128g ram. my current box is a 9th gen Intel i5 with 32g ram and 9 drives that are 3 or 4tb each in dual parity. it does ok for the most part.


question 1 - I ordered 4 12tb sas drives for the dl380 and am wondering if I can use a trial license, build the array, transfer data, then move my pro key to the dl380 and somehow tell it "this is a good array just use it" 


question 2 - with zfs being introduced would it be beneficial for a casual user to build primary array as zfs? other than striping speed I don't know that I would see any advantage... I have the usual "arr" dockers, a hass vm, windows and ubuntu vm's, run a minecraft server and a few ark servers... nothing too crazy
