Brocade 300. How to get the Universal Temporary license keys?

For a Brocade 300 Switch, I'd like to temporary use the feature "Fabric (E_Port)".
How to get the Universal Temporary license keys? Where is the information in the Brocade Web Page?

Thanks for your help.

Check the licenses first through licenseshow cmd,

I ma sure you must have fabric licenses,

then you do not need any temp license for E -ports. You need license for Trunking.

Trunking is NOT requiered for E_Port ( Fabric License )

TWO week ago hemant was the Opinion E_Port and fabric are TWO Different License.

Today is the same.

Is very Interesting.

Temp. License can only be obtain from Brocade trough you Reseller or OEM.

With Fabric license you can configure E-ports but it will be ISL only, not trunk

But with trunking License you can configure trunks, again I do not have to say that trunks will be formed thrpough E-port only.

I meant "Full Fabric", sorry about the feature name.

OK for the temporary License, I'll ask to the Ressller.

Thanks for your answers.

I think with 300 , they provide Full fabric license, did u check with licenseshow?

what does it show?  I do not think you need any temp Fabric license. The temp license can be extended too up to 45 days and max 90 days.

I am sure you do not need any such license, but you can contact ur SW provider for the same.

I don't read here a word "Trunking License"
