    Installing ESX 2.5.5 - does install require licenses to allow power on of vms?

      Installing ESX 2.5.5 - does install require licenses to allow power on of vms?

       

      I am part of a DR exercise for ESX 2.5 installation. Question is whether ESX 2.5 requires serial numbers on install to allow power on of virtual machines?

       

      Or does it allow time period where vms power on for trial period?

       

      The ESX 2.5 admin doc says it must have licenses in order to power on vms.

       

      Can the serial numbers of production ESX 2.5 be used for DR exercise, or is the serial tied to hardware. (I think it could be used.)

       

      All points will be awarded.
