How to install a license on a Virtual Center

Written by Xaus Xavier Nadal on November 14th, 2012

In this article we show how to install VMware licenses in a Virtual Center environment.

What we will do is tap a previous article where we explained as install y set up vCenter Server Appliance Mode 5.1 and thus complete the installation of the license necessary for the system has greater functionality than 60 days is the term they give us free until we buy a product license vCenter and can use it for life.

We recall that once bought a license VMware is not necessary to be renewing the license every year unless of course we want to update the product or as VMware calls it (make an update version) does not mean putting on patches but increase the versioning for example when moving from one ESX 3.5 4 to, or a 4 5.1 to, etc ... I guess you know what I mean.

This article aims to explain the steps to be followed to introduce a license to a Virtual Center environment.
