5100 license swap

Hi,

we're having some old brocade switch bought via HP with all port licenses active.

We also got a spare 5100 without any licenses.

If his production switch dies, is there a way to transfer the port licenses from the broken production to the spare 5100 which will become the new production.

Regards,

John

license cannot be move/transfer from one switch to another except by replacement with active maintenance contract.

Thanx, so a license swap from HP OEM to Brocade is not possible. We need an active support contract with HP to swap the hardware en move license from broken switch to new one?

Re: 5100 license swap

HP or other OEM no matter.

License will be Transfer to NEW Switch by replacement.

In such case you get from OEM a NEW or Repaired Switch with same License, that not mean is allow to Swap or Split License in TWO or more switch.
