You can put the key at any time before the eval expires.  Once it expires you will need to be in a free key which can be obtained on the website.  Until then you can use all features.

You just add the License Key, but do it, before the 60 Days run's out!

Part 1: HOW TO: Install and Configure VMware vSphere Hypervisor 5.1 (ESXi 5.1)

Part 2: HOW TO: Connect to the VMware vSphere Hypervisor 5.1 (ESXi 5.1) using the vSphere Client

You may want to experiment with ALL the FULL Licensed Features. (and apply on the 59thDay). At present you are in evaluation mode.

When you appply the License, you are in Registered FREE Mode, and you cannot go back to Evaluation ever!
