Cisco ESXi Licences

As Cisco is pushing virtualisation with their Unified Communications applications & UCS servers, you'll come across Cisco licence certificates for VMware ESXi licences.
It used to be that you went to the VMware OEM portal for Cisco for Cisco to redeem the licence keys to get the actual ESXi licence. For this you'll need an account on the VMware website to able to log in & redeem the licences, which you then enter into vSphere.
Now Cisco have started shipping actual licence keys for ESXi, but only for certain part codes:
  • R-VMW-UC-FND5-K9
To redeem these you enter the key directly into vSphere.
