Cannot assign vSphere 6.5 license key t… |VMware Communities

I am getting the following message when I try to assign a vSphere 6 Essentials PLUS license to a VSphere server 6.5 asset under an evaluation license before it expires:


“The following license keys are incompatible with the assets that you want to license”

[lists my new license key for 6 Essentials Plus]


The VSphere evaluation license has the following features:


vSphere and vSphere with Operations Management 


Linked Mode

Workflow Orchestration Engine

vSphere Storage Appliance

vCenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager

vCenter HA

vCenter Backup and Restore

vCenter Server Appliance Migration Tool


Essentials plus 6 license has the following features:


vSphere 6 Essentials PLUS


Unlimited virtual SMP

H.264 for Remote Console Connections

vCenter agent for VMware host

vSphere API

Content Library

Storage APIs

vSphere vMotion

X-Switch vMotion

vSphere HA

vSphere Data Protection

vShield Endpoint

vSphere Replication

vShield Zones


All I need is vMotion and HA.


Does anyone know how I resolve this? I’ve got 18 days on evaluation left.
