e - ex port is called IFL(Inter fabric link) . It is just like an ISL. Fabric license is required.

matthew,

--->>>....should edge switch have fabric license ?

A Fabric License is by Default Installed, excepted some Old Switch Model.

What is the switch Type/Modell you want to connect to AP7500 ?

Whit command "licenseshow" are you able to verify the Installed License,
