Orchestrator Evaluation Licence

I'just download the vsphere 60 days evaluation, i choose to use Vcenter, when i try to configure the orchestrator trough the Vcenter Orchestrator configuration web page i cannot finish the instalation until i write the license for the product, i have been searching for that licence on the vmware activation web page but i can't see it, any one knows where i can get this serial number?

i install the ESX succesfully but i need to test all the vcenter functionality.

thaks for your help,

regards,

Javo.

Thanks for your reply Virtual_Bee,

i have that guide, and i know where i have to write the license, but if i not have the number i cannot finish the installation of the startup options, so, my problem is that i don't know where to find the serial number, i don't have the key ( a trial one ), any ideas?

*

Startup Options

Prerequisites

*

Make sure that all of the status indicators display a green circle. You cannot start the Orchestrator server if any

of the components is not configured properly. ( my license tab indicator is in red because i don't have a number )

thanks for your attention.

Javo,

Did you receive any vCenter Standard license key when you've signed up for vsphere evaluation? I know VC has an eval mode as a feature, but did you receive any additional license key? If not, a new eval key will be issued to you.

I've the same problem as JAVOMEJI.

I also want to evaluate the vCenter, but I don't have a Serial Number.

If you have existing vCenter license key, it can be used to apply to the Orchestrator. I tested today

Hi all,

I've got the same problem, no serial key for orchestrator. Just emailed sales@vmware with request for a temporary key. Waiting for answer....

Hello,

is VMWare not interested in new customers? This issue is not responded to since 26.6. I mailed the VMWare support a week ago, all I got was the answer to read the manual. After I explained the problem thre was no response form the support team ....

So - also still waiting for answer....

Hi,

First, I want to apologise for all the delays.

Orchestrator is a somehwat advanced functionality for vSphere and for the moment not a part of the evaluation. For now, if you would like to evaluate vCO, please contact your VMware sales team, or a VMware partner and ask that a vCenter Server eval license be generated for you.

Thank you for your patience.
