How to get Free License for HP Custom Image for ESXi 5.1.0

Jump to solution

Hi there guys.

I have HP Proliant DL160 G6 and i have installed this: https://my.vmware.com/group/vmware/details?downloadGroup=HP-ESXI-5.1.0U3-GA&productId=285

I want to ask how i can get a free license for this hypervisor ?

My server is supporting only Hypervisor 5.1 but no newer versions, so i was told to install the one i posted above.

Is this version of the Hypervisor free and how i can get the license for it or from where i can download other free hypervisor not newer then 5.1.0 ?

Thanks in advance!

Unfortunately you cant get the older version license for free.. As if you are going for a free version you can try the latest version and the key are available with them. Currently esxi 6.0 .

if you bought the license for 5.1 then you can only get the license key. else its impossible.
