  • How can I extend ESXi5.1 EVA?

    I have ESXI 5.1 evaluation version installed but now I have only 17 days to go with it. I am wondering if there is any way to extend the evaluation period. I have many things in this environment.

    Any idea could possibly help me at this point.

    If you don't have vCenter Server and your ESXi host is standalone, you can get a free "vSphere Hypervisor" license key from
    VCP2 / VCP3 / VCP4 / VCP 5 / VCAP-DCA4 / VCI / vExpert 2010-2012

      That seems like a little bit of irresponsible system administration. You can't expect to run your infrastructure on the free version indefinitely.

      If you need to use vSphere long term and not just for testing then you should purchase the appropriate license.
