    One more thing: 

    If your K2 is running in the EXSI platform, you can add a network card without re-install.

    But if your K2 is running in another platform and you want to reinstall the K2 in the EXSI platform, then please note the SN of the K2, and request the reseller/distributor to get a new activation license. Because the old activation license is bound with the old K2, you can use the old activation license to activate the new K2.
