VMware vSphere 6 Essentials Kit license issue

Post by berto_mca » Oct 24, 2017 1:54 pm

Hi everyone

I was trying to do vMotion of my VMs without vMotion using your software version 9.5.

I tried in four different ESXi 6.0 servers and I get the same error:
"Current vSphere license or ESXi version prohibits execution of the requested operation"

I tried to reinstall the vMware license but doesn't works, the workaround that I have used is: Go to licenses -> Install new license -> And I had installed the same version to re-apply the license.

I didn't use a free license of vMware, why it's not working?

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Alberto, it seems like the key hasn't been updated. Please see the instructions on how to check your license which I gave you in another post of yours.
