If you are using a Virtual Center server, you would add your new licenses to your Virtual Center server. If you don't use Virtual Center, you would use a host based licence to manage your server.
This link will give you a crash course in licensing.

If you're using Virtual Center  do the following:

1.  Purchase new license and register at vmware
2.  Create a new license file on the vmware website and download
3.  On the VMware Licnese Server copy and paste new file license file in the correct location
4.  Reread the file in vmware license server

This should do the job
