Error Licensing A vCenter: License File Not Found.

Written by Suhas Savkoor



When you are adding a license to your vCenter 5.x, you receive the error:

Diagnostic message: License File Not Found



This error message is received if the license you are adding is a 6.0 license. A 5.5 vCenter cannot be licensed with a 6.0 key. 

To downgrade your license key you can follow this article here.
Once the license key is downgraded to 5.x, you will receive a new key, for the downgraded version, you can then apply this license to your 5.5 vCenter successfully.
