During the course of upgrades/installs/adding capacity people hit many different errors. One such error or issue came up and I just want to make people aware going forward about it.
If you are thinking about adding NSX to your environment and are currently running vCNS please be careful if you are using a SINGLE PSC that your vCenters are connected to. Once you add a NSX license(EVAL or full license) it will AUTO UN-SELECT your vCNS license!
Then if you are using something like vCloudDirector you might see errors like the following: “VSM response error (214): Not licensed for Entity : vcloud-netsec feature : vxlan : add on :”
To resolve this and revert back to your vCNS licenses, under Licenses click the Assets Tab, click on Solutions, select the license you want to assign again and then under the All Action gear dropdown you can click assign license.
This is a short post but hopefully it will save some people frustration in the future.
