After you upgrade all of your hosts to ESX 4.1/ESXi 4.1, you can optionally uninstall your license server and remove the license server configuration from vCenter Server.

Note

Consider leaving the license server and the license server configuration in place if the vCenter Server instance might need to manage ESX 3.x/ESXi 3.5 hosts in the future. The license server does not interfere with operations if you leave it in place.

1

As Administrator on the Microsoft Windows system, select Start > Settings > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs.

2

Select the VMware License Server and click Remove.

3

Click Yes to confirm that you want to remove the program and click Finish.

4

In vCenter Server, select Administration > vCenter Server Settings.

5

In the License Server text box, delete the path to the license server.

6

If the Reconfigure ESX 3 hosts using license servers to use this server option is selected, unselect it.

7

Click OK.
