Use of vfilers requires a multistore license.

I had the same thing when I first tried 8.1.. took a little time but a simple fix   Bundled features are not a license anymore and are enabled by options...but the options are disabled for the feature.  Here is your fix..

options licensed_feature.multistore.enable on 

Also check "options licensed" to see other features you can enable from options instead of a license key with 8.1.
