You cannot use a feature or change its configuration.

Problem

You cannot use or configure a feature and a licensing-related error message appears.

Cause

The ESXi host or the vCenter Server system is assigned a license that does not support the features that you want to configure.

Results

Check the licensed features on the ESXi host and on the vCenter Server system. Upgrade the edition of the license assigned to the host or vCenter Server if they do not include the features that you try to configure or use.
