Description This article describes what will occur when a subscription license has expired.
Scope All FortiNAC versions.

Entitlements revert back to what's encoded in the appliance key (default is Base with concurrent count = 0 unless perpetual licenses were purchased).


If the customer is using the Base license, the following behaviors can be expected:

- Limited access to the Administration UI views due to lack of permissions. See article 201800.

- Only Base features will operate. A description of each license level (Base, Plus and Pro) is provided on pages 9 & 10 of the FortiNAC Data Sheet: 

- Behavior when concurrent count has been exceeded (also described in the Administration Guide under Licenses):

- No new registrations are allowed.

- Attempts at new registrations are presented with the message Exceeded concurrent connection license limit.

- Rogues, at-risk, and disabled hosts continue to be placed in isolation as they normally would be.

- Existing registered hosts and devices continue to have network access.

- Network Access provisioning based on policy will not occur.
