    Select you preferred license key from the list and then click [Next] and finally [Assign License] to confirm.



    If you are assigning a Subscription, select a host (this will automatically select all VMs located on that host) or individual VMs, then click [Assign License to...]

    Select you preferred license key from the list and then click [Next] and finally [Assign License] to confirm.



Once you have assigned your keys, you should see a summary of what each host or VM has assigned to it. You can very easily [Unassign] by clicking the button to the side.
