Adding ESXi to vCenter failed

10.12.19 - Reading time: ~1 minute

Symptoms:

When adding a new ESXi to vCenter the following message appears: "License not available to perform the operation."

Findings:

We had to reset BIOS Battery while Rack and Stack, because Server did not boot up. So time is not set correct. Logfiles had a time of 2001-01-01.

Resolution:

Set correct Time in BIOS and boot Server up. Then you will be able to import ESXi using Evaluation License.
