ESXi Licensing Problem

This post was originally published on this site

I may have downloaded the wrong installation binary, but my VM went down yesterday from a licensing problem: “Your evaluation license for ESXi has expired.”. I only want ESXi and no other features, but when I go to the licensing tab, the following is displayed. Do I need to reinstall a different version of ESXi? I’ve been to ESXi 7.0 licensing webpage, but I’m still missing something – I’m not sure what to do there. Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks

Expiration date:





Unlimited virtual SMP

H.264 for Remote Console Connections
