What happens if FortiGate VM next-generation firewall in VMware NSX license becomes expired?


I'm a Datacenter Systems Engineer at a mid-sized enterprise Energy/Utilities Company. 

What happens if FortiGate VM next-generation firewall in VMware NSX license becomes expired? In our scenario, we have FortiGate as a 3rd party next-generation firewall and I want to know what happens when the license expires; does firewall stop or just no new updates?

Thanks a lot.

If the license expires, the services will run but you will not get updates.
