    How do you assign a license to a VMWare ESXi 5.0 host. This is just a test server and I have a serial number. But I cannot seem to find where to assign it.

    So I am truck in evaluation mode right now.

    Obviously I am missing something.

    BTW it goes give me notifications and when I click assign to host it takes me to the vwware page with no clear indication of how to proceed.

    Configuration tab, Licensed Features entry, hit the Edit link and then enter the key in there. Easy sleezy.
