My ramblings on the stuff that holds it all together
How to Convert Virtual Center from Evaluation to Licensed Version
or “How to convert virtual centre from evaluation to licenced version”… for us Brits… the “American English” is to help the international Googlers 🙂
I can’t believe I missed this, on a couple of platforms I’ve built I’ve had to start with an eval licence and then move to a proper licence but could never find how to change virtual center from eval to licenced mode.
ESX itself was fine you can do that via the VC GUI (below)
But despite a lot of googling I could never find out how to set Virtual Centre itself to use a licence server – so I ended up reinstalling/repairing and then selecting the option to use a licence server, my bad – it’s actually in the VI client GUI d’oh as Homer would say!
for my own reference, and for anyone else who has missed and is searching for how to convert Virtual Center from evaluation to licensed..
and then configure the setting here to point it at a proper licence server to enable full VC.
