Installing the VMware NSX License

In this Blog we will be learning Installing the VMWare NSX License.

Why we required VMWare NSX License?

                During the New VMware NSX installation in the existing VMware Setup, we will be unable to proceed the Host preparation of the ESXi Servers for the NSX unless we install the NSX License.

Without the NSX license – we can install NSX Manager and NSX controllers not more than that.

Sometimes we may face an issue while Installing the VMWare NSX License, that time you can just follow the steps below which will be easy to install the same.

Access the VMware Web Client of the vCenter Server

Home – Select Administration

In the Administration – Expand the Licensing and select Licenses – License Tab – Click Add to add the license
