Solution:

For vSRX 1.0, license checks are not enforced for basic security features. Even without a license, vSRX1.0 basic security features still work fine. This does not block any services.

The following chassisd log shows that no license is required.

---------------
Nov 3 00:09:32 VSRX license message: <No licensing required for feature 119>
Nov 3 00:09:32 Virtual Appliance License is not needed

---------------

Thus, the device will not accept the vSRX appliance license and return the error: 'license not valid for this product'

Licenses are necessary only if advanced features such as enhanced-web-filtering/anti-virus are to be implemented.
