OK I registered for a license on VMWare site and got the VMware vSphere Hypervisor 5 License key but no where on the side does it mention that it does expire but it does not say the latter either. Really confusing but I guess that is the way VMWare wants to play it. If OVH confirms that the license is for free and that the services wont stop working after 30,60 or 90 days I will make plans to reinstall my host. One more question, how do I get access to the backup storage through VMWare vSphere? Will I need to rebuild the guest OS? I have one VMWare guest stored on the backup device.

But it's evaluation? How can it be free after the evaluation expires? Am I missing something here? I need to know for if this license is for free it completely changes my plans!

my question is if I want to install VMware ESXi 5.0 on SyS server do I need to buy license for VMware ESXi virtualization software and if so what is the price of it?

Thanks in advance.
