    Adding hardware to a running machine with ESX4i Free license

    maishsk Expert

      When activating the free ESX4i license - it seems that removing the hotpluggable virtual hadrware from the license (which I gather was originally supposed to stop the addition on CPU/RAM) has created a more serious problem


      Once the licesnse has been changed from Evaluation

      to Free


      Then it is no longer possible to add any virtual hardware to a running machine - no NIC / Hard Disks either


      Error received


      Firstly what is "Need have have"

      Secondly this feature has been an integral part of VMware products (it works on all versions of Workstation/Server and and ESX 3.5 Product) since I can remember - why was it removed?
