ESXi new install: install steps did not ask me for license key. I have it but not sure where to input it?

in advance, thank you experts again for all of your help,

during the ESXi install, I didn't get prompted to input the license key... where do I add it?
I don't want to wait 60 days to expire...

thanks experts,

Connect with the vsphere client once installed and enter the license from there.

thank you expert,

I have vSphere open, I don't see the configuration tab...
or are you referring to the actual host?

where in the vSphere I can input license key?

thanks experts...

If you have the vSphere client open, click on the new host on the left side - then there should be a configuration tab on the right side. If this is a new install you will likely be using it a lot to set up networking and such

@bgoering: did you mean to post you serial? Maybe you should get a Admin/Mod to delete it!

No I really didn't mean to - but this just the free hypervisor... what do you think? Pretty much anyone can register for and get one.

@bgoering: EE forbids it anyway! (although in error!), just to protect you.
