Upgrading an SDDC's HCX License

Learn how to upgrade the SDDC's HCX license from Advanced to Enterprise.

Updgrading your SDDC's HCX license to Enterprise increases the number of on-premises connection keys issued from 3 to 10.

  • SDDCs that use standard shapes already include the Enterprise license at no cost.
  • The Advanced license is the default, unbilled option for dense shapes. Upgrading your HCX license is a billed option.
  • The upgrade work request is initiated immediately. The Enterprise billing cycle begins as soon as the work request is complete.

For more information, see HCX License Types.

    1. Open the navigation menu, click Hybrid, and then click VMware Solution.
    2. Click the name of the SDDC you want to upgrade. If you don’t see the SDDC listed, ensure that the correct compartment is selected.
