License replacement ( called License Transer ) is available only when a - under maintenance - defective switches was replaced by Brocade or OEM Vendor.

 

if you have a Active Maintenance Contract for the switch in question contact you Supplier or OEM, he can provice for license transer.

only brocade support can provide for license transfer, and as said the procedure is only available by replacement under warranty or with active maintenance contract.

 

I'm sorry, but we cannot assist with such a request in the community.

 

Additional FYI,  Brocade 4900 is since February 28, 2014 End of Service/Support.
