Virtual System & VSX Licensing

Hi All,

Quick question....Does a vSwitch count toward consuming a VSX virtual system license?  For example, a IP 5600 deployed with a 5VS license is running 3x virtual security gateways and 2x virtual switches.

Maxed out?

See VSX R80.40 Administration Guide p.119:

VSX Licenses

Each VSX Gateway or VSX Cluster Member requires its own license, bound to the VSX Gateway or VSX

Cluster Member IP address. Each VSX Gateway or VSX Cluster license covers a predefined number of

Virtual Systems (3, 10, 25, and 50) and these licenses are cumulative. The VSX licenses are applied in

addition to the Security Gateway license (container and Software Blades).

So a vSwitch only costs much memory, but no license...
