Trail ESX cannot run Guest VM

Hello,

I`ve created a test setup with 2 ESX 3.0.2 servers a VC 2.5 server and a SAN (based on Openfiler) for test purposes. Everything works fine. Put some Guest Vm`s on the servers also for test purposes (W2K3, Vista, Linux RH) but when I try to start them, my ESX server says " there are insufficient licenses to complete this operation. Please select the host containing the virtual machine you are trying to power on, click the configuration tab, and edit the licenses".

I don't understand why? It's a trail version for 60 days. I thought in a trail version you could test everything?

Is there a way so I can test my VM guests working on the ESX server. I especially want to test the Vmotion, DRS en VMHA functions?

I hope someone has an answer for this.

Thanks in advance

Maarten
