I purchased VMware vSphere v.5.0 Essentials (for 3 Host Max - 2 CPU Per Host) in one customer site.
Currently there are two VMware hosts (ESXi V5.5) on the network and I am setting up a 3rd VMware host(Server box). Actually there used to a 3rd VMware host (that I used to use for testing). I removed that host from the network as I no longer needed it.
I like to use ESXi 6.1 on the new Host.
My questions are:
(1) Since I am allowed to use the license for 3 hosts, can I install ESXi 6.1 on the new host and enter the license number that came with VMware vSphere v.5.0 Essentials (part# VS5-ESSL-BUN-C) or do I have to purchase vSphere V6 Essentials (Part#: VS6-ESSL-KIT-C)?
(2) Since I removed the 3rd host (for testing), am I ok to apply the license on my new VMware Host? Does VMware keep track of how many times I applied license number on different hosts?
