VDX6740T License

[ Edited ]

I have a breakout cable from one 40gb fiber to 4 10gb. When I try to enable interface tengigabitethernet 1/0/49:1 I'm seeing an error about no license for 40gb operation. I'm assuming I need to upgrade my license to be able to use the breakout cable and the fiber?

 

I am very new to fabric OS so it is entirely possible I'm not configuring something correctly. I try to specify the speed of the port and no matter what I type it says the speed is not supported. When I type "no shutdown" the port goes administratively up, then something immediatly forces it administratively down.

Re: VDX6740T License

I think on the fortygigabitethernet port you will need a 40G license whereas on the 4 tengigabitethernet ports you will require a 10G license.

 

though i will recommend you to confirm it from Brocade TAC team.
