Hello,

I recently signed up for the StarWind Virtual SAN for vSphere free version, following the guide - https://www.starwindsoftware.com/resour ... achine-cvm this references using the StarWind Management Console, but when loading up the free license, I get the following error -

[Window Title]
StarWind Management Console

[Content]
GUI management not allowed by license

[OK]..

I am unable to follow the guide, which specifically states steps to take inside the console, which I am unable to. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

My apologies, if this was answered before.

Thanks,
JP

Hi,

This is not an error but Free version limitation. To access the PowerShell library you need to select it it when installing the Management Console.

The link you shared should work well.
Please make sure to install the Management Console with the Integration Components library on a Windows Machine.
