If multiple licenses are attached to NSX Advanced Load Balancer, and one of the licenses expire, the system immediately prevents the capacity from exceeding the total resources allotted by the remaining valid licenses.

When all applied licenses expire, NSX Advanced Load Balancer returns to an unlicensed state. In the unlicensed state,

  • There is no impact on existing virtual services.

  • You cannot create new Service Engines.

  • No configuration is lost.

  • The system defaults to the free, perpetual limits.

  • As soon as a valid license is reapplied, the system will immediately be able to utilize the total resources allocated by the new license.
