I had to get a new license for VMWARE for an expired trial version. VMware Essentials Plus doesn't support Distributed switches so I have to change them to Standard switches for license to work. I do not have any extra nics on the esxi hosts. My vcenter does not work anymore because of expired license. I can access each of the esxi hosts however. There is two nic Uplink on distributed switches.
I have one vCenter and 3 hosts. Vcenter is version 6.7 and esxi hosts are 6.0. With minimal downtime what would be the best way to do this.
