Hi Team,

Can you please help us with ithe issue with ESX 4.i. It was working perfactly fine.
we just upgraded the RAM and now can not log into it using VSphere.

It says that server took too long to respond. Connection aborted.

Have restarted Server and its Network / Managment Agents several times but no luck ?

Any prompt Idear / Help would be great .

From youir vSphere client attach to the server and go to configuration, then under software select Licensed Featurs. Click the Edit.. link and enter you key in the dialog.

If you have a diagnostic memory test with your server you may want to run that on the new memory. I would first plug the new RAM back in and see if it works. Sometimes you don't get a DIMM seated correctly and it can cause all kinds of problems.

Good Luck

Thanks,
I downgraded it to 6 GB and it is responding now :(..wiered one..
But can you please help me with Licensing as well ?

I have the License Key which i forgot to put during the installaiton of ESX 4i. now it is close to Expire.

Can you please help me in how to enter that ESX License Key ?
i understand that ESX4i is free so entering the Key taht i forgot to enter during the installation should resolve the issue ?

Cheers,

Correct, that info should be in the Help of the VI Vsphere program.
