License Problems with ESX VSphere Enterprise Plus

Hi, I have an ESX 4.0 host with 2 processors that is running under eval. I have purchased 2 x 1 processor licenses (I am told you can't buy a 1 x 2 processor licenses you have to buy a seperate license for each processor).

I have downloaded the keys, but when I input I get the error "The license key entered does not have capacity for this entity).

I am guessing this is because vSphere knows the host has two processors but as I can only enter one key at a time per processor it doesn't like it?

Hi Matt,

If you have two keys, you should be able to combine your licences into one single key. Go to VMware license portal web site and generate your new key.

Hope it helps.
