I purchased additional memory for the blades on my Cisco UCS - so each went from 96 gig to 192 gig. Unfortunately I did not realize the sizable expense of upgrading VMWare to be licensed for using all that additional memory. (Oops) SO while I wait for approval for almost $30k in VMWare licensing which might not come for months - what would be the effect to installing that memory onto the blades without upgrading the licensing?
Would VMWare just ignore the additional memory?
Would VMWare stop working?
Would it work fine and see the additional memory but give you stern warning the you're not in compliance?
Would you be voiding your support agreement?
I just hate having the memory sit in the cardboard box. And if any of it is DOA I would want to know that sooner rather than later so I could RMA. Thoughts??
