Re: License brocade silk worm 200e

Ask you Reseller / OEM for a POD License.

This switch is EOL, I'm not sure if you can longer place a Order of Purchase for Additional License.

Thanks friends,

On the problem of license, i already send email to my supplier, we are awaiting contact. But i have another problem. I have to update the switch, i read in forum about the firmware updating, i could not update the firmware with drivers informed on the link, here is the error displayed on screen and print screen. I tried install the next version 5.2.0 and 5.3.0. I am supposed to input the wrong driver. Have you see this problem?
