I am about to embark on the Patch2 update and have seen several postings about the steps to follow.
During the update, when presented with the question to either install a new license server or use an existing one what is the best option? I have the Licensing Server installed on the same server as VC so would I just choose to use existing then?
hmm. I'm sure i selected to install a new license server. Hopefully someone else can tell us what they did....
It definetly made changes though, I can now just drop license files into C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware License Server\Licenses rather than only having one license file.
FYI - I selected "use existing" instead of install new... because like you, I wasn't sure at the time. This wasn't a problem, all worked fine. However, the NEW license server has much better handling of license files... it creates a "License" folder and any *.lic files you place in there will be read into the system. Beats having a mega-long .lic file.
Applying the License Server update post patch-2 installation works just fine if you happen to skip it during the normal VC update process.
