Brocade 200e documentation and licenses

Does anyone know where I can find documentation on the 200e?

Secondly, does anyone know how I would add another license to use the additional ports? I have the Web and Zone license and the WWN ID, MFG ID and Supplier ID. Any ideas?

Hi luis.f.gonzalez

If you type "licenseadd" from the cli

Copy and paste your license it and your good to go

You can also do it via Webtools under switch admin

Luis,

You can Download all Manuals you nedd here in the community.

go to

-> documentation

-> Product Manuals

-> Documentation

Select -> Fabric Operating Systems (Fabric OS )

and download the manuals by FabOS release loaded in the switch.

Thanks. Just one more follow up. How and where would I get a license key? This switch is a hand-me-down, but within the same organization. Is there a Brocade contact  to obtain license keys?

Must place a Order by your Local Reseller/Vendor.

The switch says my supplier ID is 1LPWYD1. Is there a way to dereference the Local Reseller/Vendor from the supplier ID?

NO. This is not necessary to Place a order of Purchase for the additional License you need.

Is the Switch Genuine Brocade or OEM ? Ex. IBM, HP.....

E-Port License ( is requiered if you want to connect the switch in a Fabric, also to another switch ) ISL = Inter switch link

Brocade Part Number BR-SMEDEPT-01

4 Additional Port License 0 SFP ( no SFP included )

Brocade Part Number  BR-SMED4POD-01

4 Additional Port License 4 SFP ( 4 SFP included )

Brocade Part Number XBR-SMED4POD-0001

This are all Standard List Pricing, ask you reseller for Discount.

To place a order you need the exact switch WWN.
