How to install additional port

Hi,

I want to add 4 port on a switche Silkworm 200E and I get licence for that.

But I don't know if I must insert the new 4 ports in slot of the switche BEFORE entering Licence key

or AFTER entering Licence key ?

Thanks for your help.

Your can add the License with or without the inserted SFP.

Before or After, the licenseadd don't have any impact with the SFP

You dont need to power cycle the switch to add SFP's. Just plug them in and they will be picked up. You can check them with the switchshow or sfpshow commands.
