This property only applies to vFabric Hyperic servers acquired as a part of vFabric Suite; it is ignored if you obtainedvCenter Hyperic as a stand-alone component.

Use vfabric.licenseServer.url to specify the URL of the VMware Licensing Server that administers your vFabric Suite license.

By default, ServerHome/conf does not contain vfabric.licenseServer.url. To define the location of the VMware License Server, you must add vfabric.licenseServer.url to ServerHome/conf/hq-server.conf.
