What are the two most likely reasons that VMs cannot power up on this host?

An administrator has just completed an upgrade of an ESXi 5.x host. Prior to the upgrade, a backup of the host configuration was performed. After the upgrade, the backup was restored to the upgraded host. Shortly after the upgrade was completed, the administrator receives complaints that users are unable to power on virtual machines.

B.
The backup applied to the host after the upgrade was taken before the host was licensed.

C.

D.

    B. is talking about the backup of host before upgrade while D is talking about host after upgrade. The question is based on the assumption that the virtualization admin is responsible for a host running without licenses. LOL
