ESXi 5.5 Hypervisor download?

Hi,

Do you know if the license is an evaluation key?

Welcome to the Community,

after installing ESXi, it will run in evaluation mode for 60 days without the need to assign a license key. Once the evaluation period is over, you need to enter a license key, no matter whether this is a key for a paid license, or the free Hypervisor (for which you will receive a key after registration).

Hello,

Do you know if  this is a free hypervisor?, If I install this can I change the license after the installation?

Don't worry, the binaries are the same for each edition. It's only the license key which makes the difference.

Unless you already have a license key for the free Hypervisor Edition, you can register for one at https://my.vmware.com/en/web/vmware/evalcenter?p=free-esxi5
