vmware ESXi 4.1 free license

Jump to solution

I've downloaded and installed ESXi 4.2 installable iso file, then installed it. Later I downloaded and installed the VIclient 4.1, When I login to my account at vmware I see a key for ESXi 4.1, but I just can't find any way to install/assign the key nor on the server or the vclient, I'm still using evaluation licnese. Although the site says clearly that ESXi is free, and vShere client can be used manage a single server at a time for free, but I just can't replace the evaluation license with the free one.

Please adivise.

Regards

JVA

You can enter the key under Vsphere client.

Login to ESX server using vsphere client -> come to Configuration tab -> Thn under Licensed features link -> you can put your Lic. Key.

I hope this will help

Can I assign the same free ESXi 4.1 key to multiple physical servers?

You can use the same license for the number of hosts you entered when you registered to download ESXi. You can change the number of hosts from the bottom of the download page.
