I don't think you can now, since 6.x is no longer supported as a product.

So there isn't a way to license a "lab" esxi 6.7 running on hardware that 7 doesn't support?  That seems odd.

Due to the EOL of ESXi 6 I assume there is no options at all to receive license

I have a Dell Poweredge T320 and the maximum supported system is 6.5 (downloaded custom from the dell site).
Installing the custom iso it tells me it will expire in 60 days but it is not possible to install a more recent version. How can I get a free serial? I only need it to study and learn how to use it (to put it on my curriculum) and I can't buy it.
