When trying to add a 5.5 host to the new vCentre 6, we get these two warnings:
The selected license is part of the inventory of another vCenter Server system. Assigning this license will make it part of the inventories of multiple vCenter Server systems resulting in a non-compliant licensing configuration.
To restore the compliance, remove the license from its original vCenter Server system after you complete this wizard.
Cannot decode the licensed features on the host before it is added to vCenter Server. You might be unable to assign the selected license, because of unsupported features in use or some features might become unavailable after you assign the license.
Do I need to upgrade the VMware vSphere 5 Essentials Plus to the 6.0 version? If so, I get the following message when I try:
Some features will become unavailable after license assignment.
From VMware vSphere 5 Essentials Plus <license Key>
The following features will become unavailable:
* Unlimited virtual SMP
* vCenter agent for VMware host
* vShield Zones
* vShield Endpoint
* vSphere Replication
* vSphere API
* Storage APIs
* vSphere HA
* vSphere Data Protection
* vSphere vMotion
To use these features in future, select different license key.
Please advise on how to respond to error messages.
