VMWare licensing and ESX(i)
Quick question... I've got a vmware setup at my current place, set up by an ex member of staff. I know very little about vmware, so I unsure about what I need to do to add an additonal ESX(i) server.
We have the following: vmware vcenter server standard 4.1.0 and 2 X ESX 4.1 hosts.
I want to add a third host, but have a couple of questions:
- With what I currently have, do I need to change any of the licensing? I'm of the understanding currently that I won't, as vcenter server standard allows for more than two hosts as part of the license?
- Can I install the latest version of ESXi (as opposed to ESX) and add it as part of vCenter, along with the two current ESX hosts and expect full compatibility between them (moving VMs etc)?
