How to include a standalone esxi host into virtualcenter server
Posted on 2008-10-24
We have an esx server clustered with 5 hosts and its being managed by our virtualcenter server (all 6 hosts are shown and managed there).
We just created a standalone esxi server and wanted to add it to our virtualcenter server to also be managed (not clustered, just added to manage it).
i can get my virtualcenter server to see the host, and when i connect to it, it seems like its going well, but then it bombs out complaining about licensing.
If i connect to the standalone host and check the licensing, the key is shown and it runs VMs just fine...
I think I read something about esxi needs a virtualcenter server agent installed, but I couldnt find anything in it.
