Ensure that the vSphere Client is connected to the vCenter Server system.

Ensure that you have the vSphere Web Client installed and the vCenter Server system is registered with it.


In the vSphere Client, select Home > Administration > Licensing.

If the vCenter Server instance that you are connected to is part of a Linked Mode group, leave the default All vCenter Server instances value in the vCenter Server drop-down menu.
