Post free licence from ESXi4 on ESX4 ??
Hello

One simple question.
Can I use ESX4 licensed ESXi4?

I did something like this to install ESX, and introduced the license key from ESXi4.

Is this a joke? if so can it be?

See what I got:

Legally you can't but I'm a bit surprised that they don't check the license. Are you able to start VMs OK?

License has been adopted by the ESX server and operating normally.
VM can be run, I had not noticed the problems.

I was also working Adaptec RAID 2405:) SAM.

The only problem is in vCenter.
If such a ESX with free ESXi license is connected to vCenter, vCenter remove free ESXi licenses from ESX. :(

vCenter verify a license and does not allow its use for ESX.
Since ESXi does not have vCenter Agent in its free license.
