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 must check whether all hosts in a vSphere HA cluster are licensed for this feature.


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


  1. Navigate to the vCenter Server system, host, or cluster whose licensed features you want to view.
  2. Click the Configure tab.
  3. Under Settings, select Licensing.


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