VMWare vSphere Essentials 5 - Licensing Isse
Posted on 2014-08-18
I uninstalled and reinstalled VMWare vSphere Essentials, took quite a lot of effort.
Login to my vCenter server using Administrator@vsphere.local and remembered password.
Created a Datacenter and when I tried to add the host using IP number I get this error:
Time: 8/14/2014 9:24:35 AM
Description: Add standalone host
The host is licensed with VMware vSphere 5 Hypervisor. The license edition of vCenter Server does not support VMware vSphere 5
Additional Event Details:
Type ID: Info
DataCenter Object Type: Datacenter
Additional Task Details:
VC Build: 1945274
Task Id: Task
Description Id: Folder.addStandaloneHost
Event Chain Id: 93
I have figured out I need to add my License key(s) for VMware vSphere 5 Essentials for 1 processor (VS5-ESSL-C) 6 CPU(s) to the Free ESXi 5.0 Host, just cannot figure out how to do that.
