Change in MAS License assignment

After last updates to MAS, system license assignment has changed. In first release of MAS, the limit will hit when you add number 30 LB/CS/VPN etc.

NetScaler Management and Analytics System (NetScaler MAS) requires a verified NetScaler MAS license to manage and monitor the Citrix NetScaler instances.
