does my cloned VM-Series firewall not have a valid license?
VMware assigns a unique UUID to each virtual machine
including the VM-Series firewall.So, when a VM-Series firewall is
cloned, a new UUID is assigned to it. Because the serial number
and license for each instance of the VM-Series firewall is tied
to the UUID, cloning a licensed VM-Series firewall will result in
a new firewall with an invalid license. You will need a new auth-code
to activate the license on the newly deployed firewall. You must
apply the capacity auth-code and a new support license in order
to obtain full functionality, support, and software upgrades on
the VM-Series firewall.
