Purpose

This article provides information on licensing VMware NSX for vSphere 6.x.

Resolution

 Notes:
  • License keys for NSX are displayed as Per CPU on the My VMware License Keys page. However, once licensed, keys are identified as per Virtual Machine on the Web or the vSphere Client. There is no hard enforcement on the number of Virtual Machines licensed and the product will be under compliance.
  • For vSphere environments with VMware Site Recovery Manager, only the active ESXi hosts on the Protected site requires the NSX for vSphere 6.x license.
