So you have deployed and configured the VMware NSX Manager Virtual Appliance, deployed the VMware NSX Controller(s) and goto Host Preparation and click Install to prepare your hosts. Then you get an error message to say you don’t have the right license… did you forget something?
Adding VMware NSX Licensing to vCenter
Note: These steps assume you are not even logged into vCenter Server. Skip the first few steps if you are!
Using your favourite web browser, navigate to the vCenter Server login page (https://vcenter.fqdn).
Assign a VMware NSX for vSphere License
Select the new license (i’ve called it NSX for vSphere) and click OK.
