ESX4 Licensing Error

Hi All,

I am trying to reinstall ESX on my server and am getting a "No matching licenses for serial number" message for some reason when I enter my ESX activation serial key. I had it installed just fine with the exact same key earlier last week and then I devided to reinstall it because I wanted to reconfigure the RAID arrays on the server and am now getting this, any idea why?

thanks,

thanks,

I've had this issue a few times.  Get on the phone with vmware and have them re-issue the key.

Yeah - I would if their system wouldn't keep disconnecting me....I think it's going to be one of "those " days. Okay thanks for responding, at least I know it's not me! :) Bizarre that it took it the first time and now magically doesn't like it.

thanks,

I've had this with several customers, even had license keys not work all together.

Also make sure that your license matches the number of CPUs in the system
