CPU's and VMware free edition?
Posted on 2010-08-25
When open a 2008 host with VMware ESXI free version with 8 logical processors I get the following error: Feature vsmp not licensed, requires 8 have 4.
The licence in vSphere client shows:
Product: vSphere 4 Hypervisor Licensed for 2 physical CPUs (1-6 cores per CPU)
License Key: 4N0CP-2E29K-58638-0U2RP-187PN
Up to 256 GB of memory
Up to 4-way virtual SMP
Does this mean i have to upgrade to the next version of VMware to use all 8 cores?
