  • In case if you're running VMWare version lower than 6.5, please run this command in order to reduce VMWare HW Compatibility Level:
OVFTool hw compatibility change (example for ESXi 6.0)
ovftool --maxVirtualHardwareVersion=11 wms_5_01_x64_20201113.ova wms_5_01_x64_20201113_v11.ova


Once the VM is installed, follow PBX Licensing and Activation Admin Guide (chapter PBX Activation) to activate your PBX and add user licenses.
