Once you configure the NSX Advanced Load Balancer, you must add a license to it. The Controller boots in evaluation mode that has all the features equivalent to an Enterprise edition license available. You must assign a valid Enterprise Tier license to the Controller before the evaluation period expires.


Verify that you have the Enterprise Tier license.


  1. In the NSX Advanced Load Balancer Controller dashboard, select Administration > Licensing.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Select Enterprise Tier.
  4. Click SAVE.
  5. To add the license, select Upload from Computer.
    After the license file is uploaded, it appears in the Controller license list. The system displays the information about the license, including the start date and the expiration date.
