ESXi 5.5 License Key Question?

Does anybody know how many times can I use the same license key for the free Hypervisor?  I want to run it on a few machines at home but it looks like I only get one key.

 

Thanks.

My guess is once. 

Hence, free. 

 

Though, I suppose if you have multiple email accounts, you could register for multiple keys.

I have ran the Free ESXi key on at least three hosts a while back, never had issues. IMHO VMware does not validate their keys online as there is no reason why a ESX host should have internet access.

That's an interesting perspective; hadn't thought of it that way.
