Issue/Introduction

When the SSLV's Host Categorization License expires any rules utilizing Host Categorization lists will no longer be matched. This applies to both the BCWF and Local categories

If the license is expired the SSLV will evaluate the next rule in the ruleset until there is a match. Once a rule is matched the policy evaluation stops and that action applies, which could be Inspect, Cut, Drop, or Reject depending on the configuration. 

Cause

The SSLV's Host Categorization license has expired.

Resolution

The SSLV will alert the user when the Host Categorization license expiration is within 30 days. To avoid any issues keep the license up to date.
