    Recover vSphere license key

    utcplymouth Lurker

      Hello all, please forgive the newbie question.   I took over support of IT systems at a college running ESXi 5.1.  We've recently had to reinstall the vSphere server as the installation had become corrupted and now vSphere server is in evaluation mode.  Of course, we have no record of the licence key.


      How can I recover the key?  Do I need to contact vmware or can I find it somewhere?  if the organisation did have an account with vmware with the keys listed it is lost.


      Many thanks,
