i have a question on vmware license.
Can we use a license in a lab and in a production ?
We like to train some of our tech to paly around and learn vmware instead of them to play in a the production server?

If this is ESXi license, you have the opportunity to use it on 999 hosts, so yes, you can. Need a bit more info on what license you're referring to...

Ok, so if it trial you're ok with, just don't add your license to where you do your vCenter/ESX or ESXi host installs.
