Licensing is by far, the most misunderstood, confusing, and sometimes frustrating part of vSphere and vCenter, and generates a ton of calls into support. And we’ve noticed. Today the Knowledgebase Team released another video KB: Licensing ESX 4.0, ESXi 4.0, and vCenter 4.0 We anticipate this KB will become a heavy-hitter before long.
If you are:
- Unable to remove ESX 4.0/ESXi 4.0 from Evaluation Mode
- Unable to upload the license file for vSphere
- Unable to connect vSphere 4 to vCenter Server
- Unable to activate vSphere
…proceed directly to Licensing ESX 4.0, ESXi 4.0, and vCenter 4.0 (1010839). The KB guides you through steps to add, assign, and remove the licenses of ESX 4.0, ESXi 4.0, and vCenter 4.0, in video form with accompanying detailed test instructions.
You are welcome to leave your Star rating and/or feedback in any KB including this one. Enjoy!!
