Ensure that you provide licensing information for all destination virtual machines running guest operating systems as necessary. Because of third-party licensing policies, you might not be able to transfer the license from the source machine and you might need to provide a new valid license for the destination virtual machine.

Prerequisites

On the Options page of the Configuration wizard, select Customize guest preferences for the virtual machine and click Next to view and modify the available customization options.

Procedure

  1. On the Customizations page, select Windows license from the options list.
  2. In the Product ID text box, type the licensing information for the destination virtual machine.
  3. (Optional) If the guest operating system is Windows Server 2008, select Include server license information.
  4. Select a Server license mode option.
