OpenManage Integration for VMware vCenter Version 5.2 Installation Guide

OpenManage Integration for VMware vCenter (OMIVV) licensing

OMIVV has two types of licenses:

  • Evaluation license—when the OMIVV appliance is powered on for the first time, an evaluation license is automatically installed. The trial version contains an evaluation license for five hosts (servers) managed by OMIVV. This 90-day trial version is the default license that is supplied when shipped.
  • Standard license—you can purchase any number of host licenses that are managed by OMIVV. This license includes product support and OMIVV appliance updates. The standard license is available for periods of three or five years. Any additional licenses bought extend the period of the existing license.

License duration for a single XML key is calculated based on the sales date of the original order. Any uploaded new licenses will be reflected in the count after the 90 day grace period ends for any prior, expiring licensing.

OMIVV supports up to 15 vCenter instances. When you upgrade from an evaluation license to a full standard license, you receive an email about the order confirmation, and you can download the license file from the Dell Digital Locker. Save the license .XML file to your local system and upload the new license file using the Administration Console.

When you purchase a license, the .XML file (license key) is available for download through the Dell Digital Locker at If you are unable to download your license keys, contact Dell Support by going to Contact Order Support at to locate the regional Dell Support phone number for your product.

Licensing presents the following information in the OMIVV Administration Console:

  • Maximum vCenter Connection Licenses—up to 15 registered and in-use vCenter connections are enabled.
  • Maximum Host Connection Licenses—the number of host connections that were purchased (with a maximum of 2000 hosts supported for a single OMIVV instance).
  • In Use—the number of vCenter connection or host connection licenses in use. For host connection, this number represents the number of hosts (or servers) that have been inventoried.
  • Available—the number of vCenter connections or host connection licenses available for future use.

When you attempt to add a host to a host credential profile, if the number of licensed hosts exceeds beyond the number of licenses, adding extra hosts is prevented. OMIVV does not support managing the number of hosts more than number of host license is available.

NOTE Any active license can be used for OMIVV 5.x versions. Licenses backed up from previous instances of OMIVV, or downloaded again from the Digital Locker can be used for current instances of OMIVV.
