New install Vsphere and vcenter

Jump to solution

This may seem pretty basic but I have not run across this before and Vsphere threw me for a loop with changing the licensing.

I have a new install I am working on. First question is ISCSI available with the Evaluation Mode license? It does not appear so to me.

If not then the second issue is the client want's a new active directory domain. Can I install vcenter without being part of any active directory domain and do all the licensing from there?

i believe the eval is fully functional. you need to enable the iSCSI intiator under storage adapters.

vCenter does not need to be a member of the domain, and also in vsphere there is no license server like with 3.5

Wow thans for the quick reply. If I don't have the vcenter server as part of the domain now can I join it later without any pain?

Evaluation includes all, it equals Enterprise Plus for 60 days.

The evaluation is fully functional for a period of 60 days, if by "the Client" you mean vCenter. this is expected as the vCenter now installs a ADAM datastore as part of its install. it is not Active Directory. futher there is no requirement for vCenter server to be a member of an Active Directory Domain.
