Moving ESXi host between Vcenters

HI gurus

I am trying to remove a esxi host from one Vcenter and added to another Vcenter but when adding this host to the new Vcenter I get the following Lics error. How do I fix this?

"The selected license is part of the inventory of another vCenter Server system. Assigning this license will make it part of the inventories of multiple vCenter Server systems resulting in a non-compliant licensing configuration."

 

Thanks for any help.

Will the old vCenter still be in use?

Okay.

From what I understand, that message is a compliance warning so you don't use the same license key in two vCenter server environments.

I believe you will need to remove the license in question from the old vCenter server to restore compliance.

Cheers

Hi,

It's a normal warning that wants to remind you: Don't forget to remove the license and never migrate it beside the ESXi host because your vSphere licenses are part of critical assets of the current vSphere infrastructure. BTW please review the following link:

Good Luck
