Check Vmware Edition

Check Vmware Edition

I need to check the edition of our Vmware Vsphere, whether it is Enterprise or Standard Edition.

I see some information in the Licensing, but I would like to know if the software installed matches the info shown in the Licensing area. (Home/Administration/Licensing)

So you have Enterprise and Enterprise Plus licensing but you have used only Enterprise Plus licensing for your hosts.

You don't even have to Expand. All your hosts are running on Enterprise Plus.
You can click on the Host>Configuration>Software>Licensed features
And see what License you are running.
Here's a screenshot

Do you have DRS Listed?

Do you have Distributed Switches Listed?

There are now only three versions of VMware vSphere (current in 5.x)

Standard, Enterprise and Enterprise Plus?

Distributed Switches
is only in Enterprise Plus?

DRS (Distributed Resource Scheduling) is only in Enterprise and Enterprise Plus.

You can also tell by looking at your keys in MyVMware.

Expand the Product, and you will see which Asset (Host Server) the license applies to.
