I have a dcx and it los the license...(say no license). i try to register the old again but that don't work.
the license software-key for normal switch are generated with the wwn-switch input and a transaction key, later you are using "licenseadd xxxx" and the license is in the switch..(i think there is a mecanism to controll that the license is for the correct switch though the switch wwn)
For the dcx , the director are delivered with the license already registrated. I try to make again licenseadd xxx but it say always license key not valid... (from old supportshow)
i became the original license table for my switch again and an other one for an other one that is normal working
Nr part Nr Ser Nr Software key
i try to register the software key in the dcx it is always coming invalid key. (licenseadd xxx)
i controlled the wwn
Dcx2 BRCAFX1945E002 WWN 10:00:00:05:1e:6b:7c:00, the wwn switch is different.
on the other dcx (without problem) the license wwn are different from the switch wwn
How is working the license system for a dcx how can i register the licensekey into this one? exists a new method?

is this the same issue ?
License are unique by WWN Number, with other word as example a License from WWN ....xx:yy:zz:11 cannot be installed in .....xx:yy:zz:99
Try from CLI "switchshow" "wwn -sn" and "licenseidshow" to verify if you get same output.
post a result here.
Please note, the DCX use a dual WWN Card, it is problabe the Primary Card is Offline.
Try errshow to see if any error is available, collect the o/p and post here please.

the supportshow, show two WWN Address
I note you have start a Firmware upgrade, was this impact caused before or after firmwaredownload ?

If you cannot use the wwn command because the switch is inoperable, you can get the
primary WWN from the same place as the serial number, except for the Brocade
DCX/DCX-4S. For the Brocade DCX, access the numbers on the WWN cards by
removing the Brocade logo plate at the top of the non-port side. The WWN is printed on
the LED side of both cards.
