Hello - Question for Network Advisor peeps - we have 2 SAN fabrics with a DCX8510-4 backbone -which licence?

 

Hello

 

We have 2 SAN fabrics with a DCX8510-4 backbone. Which license should we purchase in order to manage this - what is the difference between the enterprise and the professional plus license? (except obviously it licenses more ports etc)

 

It says that professional plus does not have " DCX Backbone discovery/Management " whereas enterprise version does - what exctly does this mean ?

 

 

thanks

@unix_admin

 

I've tested in the past BNA Prof+ License with DCX First Generation ( 8Gb Platform ) , and this work.

 

However Professional Plus cannot manage Application Blade i.e. FX8-24, FICON is not supported, and some other Features, such as FCR, I believe VF the same.

 

I'll try to test again with my DCX-8510-4 and post here the result.
