Issue/Introduction

Identify and remediate the License key status for the VMware HCX license by sharing the steps for activating or getting the new valid license.


Symptoms:

This message shows up after an attempt to migrate a VM and it fails with the error "Cap limit exceeded for the migration type 'vSphereReplication'"


Cause

License key status Inactive

Resolution

Please confirm the validity of the License Key accessing see KB How to view license keys in Customer Connect (2006831): https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/2006831
 
If your License key is not listed in your Customer Connect or it is inactive, please feel free to engage your VMware Account Team or open a new non-technical case with the licensing team and select License Management for activating the license or getting the new valid one. See https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/2006985

NOTE: Please validate other production licenses like NSX as it could also be related to this behavior.

Once you have your license key activated or you got a new valid license key, please make sure that after the key was changed you either restarted the services on the manager or the manager itself restarted on both the connector and cloud sides. See KB HCX - How to restart HCX Manager services (93169).
