Anyone using Autolab for their VCP5-DCV exam?

Hello,

I've just finished my VCP5-DCV course and I want to build my own home lab to go through the topics again.  I was recommended to use Autolabs 2.0 which I have downloaded and started to install, however how do I get hold of trial license keys for ESXi5.5 and vCenter?

Many thanks in advance for your help, this is is a new area for me.

Thanks

Thanks, so you get all the features for 60 days, then after that you reinstall if you have 2?

Also what about vCenter?

kind regards

Trial versions are offered to try your hand on the product and features, its not the right way to re install and use again for 60 days.

I would suggest please plan your exam date and then deploy the vSphere lab.

You should be able to download trial version of vCenter too.

So how does everyone keep their labs and learn without the 60 day issue?  Do they buy full licenses?

It was just my suggestion.

Usually people do re-install keep using it, you can do that too since your using in a lab for personal use.
