    VMware 6.0: Valid license for addng Host. License decline issue.

    nri_tech1183 Novice

      I have this four month old setup of vmware 6.0 esxi on vmware workstation. Which was unused for past four months. I setup it for lab practice purpose at home but never got chance to use it.

       

      Today I signed up with vmware for a free key but even that key aint working at all when in my vSphere Web Client.

       

      Whenever I try to add Host to my existing empty Cluster at the end of the add host wizard it prompts for license key and no matter what license I put in it always throws error. No matter what license I choose it simply doesnt like it and declines.

       

      Is there separate special license for Nodes & Clusters??

       

      Refer to below pics.
