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.

Configuration tab, licensed features, edit, then enter new license

Good Luck

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.
