Before you start to use a feature on an asset, you can check whether the asset is licensed to use this feature. For example, to use vSphere HA, you should check whether all hosts in a vSphere HA cluster are licensed for this feature.


  • To view and manage licenses in the vSphere 6.0 environment, you must have the Global > Licenses privilege on the vCenter Server system, where the vSphere Web Client runs.


  1. In the vSphere Web Client, navigate to the asset whose licensed features you want to view.
  2. Click the Manage tab.
  3. Select the Settings option.
  4. Under System, select Licensing.


The list of features that you can configure on the asset appears on the right.
