ISL trunking problems

Hi all

My switch model is brocade 5000 with FOS 5.3.0

I connect 2 fiber between two switches, and the trunking is listed on license

Two ports were found showing as E-port

On web tools

But in each port details, the button of both Enable trunking and disable trunking is dimmed on the FC-tab

And no trunk links on switch admin page - trunking tab.

Any ideas ?

RyanLi,

--->>> Any ideas ?

you need a Trunking License before you can use trunking.

check trough the CLI with the command "licenseshow" to see wich License are installed.

Re: ISL trunking problems

If a trunking License is Installed ( both switch ) , your must before can use trunking config this trough the CLI with the command "portcfgtrunkport"

for details see in the CLI Manuals.
