segmened (no fabric licence)

hi,

first, sorry for my english. 

I have one IBM (brocade 200E) and one brocade 300. I need to connect two datacenter whit 2 km of FC.  I have conneted the port 11 in the 200E to the port 7 in the 300. I have use two BRCD LBL 4GB 4KM LONG WAVE SFP in these ports. I try to reconfigure ports in L0:normal, in LE:<10km, at 1 Gb, at 4 Gb. I try to disable NPIV in both ports. But these ports never link ok.  In the port of the 200E show  segmened (no fabric licence). at this moment I'm to upgrade firmware to the las FOS in the sw. But I think that isn't the problem.

there is the "fabricshow" and "switchshow":

Re: segmened (no fabric licence)

Hi,

do you see any differences between the switches in the output of 'licenseshow' ?
