Hi!

I have install a trial version of ESIX 5.1 on a new host.  I have a 60 days trial.

Can I add this host to my VShpere Cluster even if this is a trial?  I already have 3 host.

Is there some kind of risk to add a trial host?

Thanks!

Yes, if it's currently in TRIAL mode for 60 days, it's as good as an Enterprise Plus license for 60 days, you can use all the Enterprise Plus features and add to VMware vSphere vCenter Server.

Just do not add the FREE license, because then it reverts to FREE Mode, which cannot be added to VMware vSphere vCenter Server.
