Change ESXi server license to evaluation while connected to esxi directly using powercli

by Grzegorz Kulikowski

In order to change license to the evaluation one when the host is still not connected to Virtual Center we can use this approach.
[sourcecode language=”powershell”]
connect-viserver esxi1.local
$lm = Get-View -Id ‘LicenseManager-ha-license-manager’
$lm.UpdateLicense("00000-00000-00000-00000-00000", $null)
This will change esxi licene to the evaluation one on Esxi 5.
