If you have set up VMWare ESX you will find that it defaults to the evaluation version giving you 60 days of unlimited use. But, how do you apply your serial number? We have created a quick video below to help you with this easy process:

When using this in a lab environment, you could use the stripped-back version of VMWare ESX with unlimited usage using the serial number below (as detailed in the video):

If you need to use the many features VMWare has to offer, then you would need to purchase a correct licence and enter that instead.

    1. did u find a esxi 6 license key I need one and can’t get one free VMware as its not current version

  1. thanks – after a frustrating search on trying to find how to do this in vmwares website, a search for key generator lead me to this…. appreciated.

  2. Serial not working with Veeam “Backup and Replication”. It stops with error “Current vSphere licence or ESXi version prohibits execution the requested operation”. Without serial (60 days evaluation mode) works Veeam fine. Any solution? Another key?
