vmware 5.5

Hi I am unable to apply my license key to a rebuilt slight newer appliance centre .
the new appliance is in evaluation mode at the moment.
I purchased essentials 5.5 and downloaded (I hope) the correct appliance from my-vmware.
when applying my serial number it will apply to the existing (new) appliance
Any ideas ??

Hi, sorry your question is not entirely clear to me, you are not succeeding to apply a license to the vCenter appliance? Do you get an error when you try to apply it?

Maybe you can take a screenshot of whay you're seeing?

You need to ASSIGN the license, which is currently added, but not Assigned to the vCenter Server object.
