Ist es möglich Lizenzen „downzugraden“?

Ja, ist es. Wie, das kann man in diesem KB Artikel nachlesen:

http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=2006975

Der Artikel bietet Euch eine genaue Beschreibung, wie man vorgehen muss.

Aber Achtung!! Nicht alle Lizenzen lassen sich herunterstufen!!!

Zusammengefasst heisst es zum Downgrade von Lizenzen:

When a new version of a product is released, the older versions are no longer available for purchase. Downgrading a license key allows you to use an older version of a product. If you downgrade a license key, you can revert to the newer version by upgrading the license key. For more information, see How to upgrade license keys in My VMware (2006974).

Only Super Users, Procurement Contacts, and users with Upgrade and Downgrade License Keys permissions can downgrade a license key.
Not all products are eligible for downgrade. When you select Downgrade License Keys from the I want to dropdown, you only see products that can be downgraded.
Notes:
  • The downgrade option is not available for ESXi 4 Single Server to ESXi 3.x.
  • The downgrade option is not available for vSphere Essentials to VI3.
  • If license keys are downgraded from vSphere Enterprise version 5 to ESX version 3, the vSphere Enterprise 5 key will still remain in the license portal and a new license key will be available in the VI3 license portal. You will not be able to upgrade this new VI3 key. To remain in compliance, use either the vSphere Enterprise 5 key or the downgraded VI3 key.
  • Site Recovery Manager 5 has two different editions: Standard and Enterprise. You can downgrade the Site Recovery Manager 5 Enterprise licenses to previous version, but you cannot downgrade Site Recovery Manager 5 Standard licenses.
  • No edition downgrade.
  • The downgrade view portal may vary depending on Browsers.
