Can I extend my vCenter 6.5 eval license (60 days)?

Jump to solution

I'm finally finished to build my Lab, but I cant start testing because my vCenter License is ended in about a few days..
All that work I´ve done for weeks is thrown away Smiley Sad

I´m using vCenter 6.5 with 2 ESXi hosts.

I really appreciate your answer.Smiley Happy

Not if you don't have a valid license key. There's no way to "refresh" the evaluation period without reinstalling.

But, after all, we are selling the vendor solutions to the management.

Management always comes to us first and check if the supplier's technology works as the vendor (seller) says.

So what should my answer be in front of the architect board in about 2 week?

-"I dont know, choose HyperV or XenServer because that´s the only vendors who is generous enough and allowing us to test all the way?"

I believe many advisory technicians understand what I´m trying to explain here.

The VMware partner website contains a document with 90 day evaluation license keys. Contact your VMware partner; they might be able to help you.

If you are working with a partner vendor, then they have access to quarterly keys used for PoC purposes and other functionalities. They should be able to extend your trial by giving you a time-limited key. If you aren't working with them, then, as I said, there's no way to extend a trial without a key of some kind--either timed or perpetual.

Simply you don't have valid key for vcenter then no any way to extend period.
