salting dry-aged steak: right before cooking or in advance?

Discovered some great dry-aged steak at Eataly yesterdat. Have never worked with it before, just regular steak from decent meat shops. It was strip steak. I salted right before cooking because I found lots of conflicting info out there as to advance salting with dry-aged (and in general with non-aged) Would love suggestions.

I like to salt and pepper the steaks right before, males for a nice flavorful crust.

I remember reading somewhere that the best thing to do is salt a steak well in advance (but at least one hour before). If you cannot do that, the second best is right before. Trying to remember the source, will post back if I do....
