License server issue logged??

When a VM is powered on a Host and the Host can't contact the license server, the VM is not powered on.

Is there an error generated anywhere, either in VC or on the ESX host itself? If the answer is yes, can you tell me where to look?

Thanks

Hello,

That could be in /var/log/vmware/hostd.log, but most likely in /var/log/vmkernel.log.

Best regards,

Edward
