VDX6740 license options

Hello,

 I have a very basic question about the dpod licenses on VDX switch. We have a VDX6740 switch. We have installed an 8 port upgrade license.  The question is, does the switch have any base license that comes with the switch. In other words, if there is no pod license istalled, will any ports work.   This is what I see in the output of show dpod.

 

32 10G port assignments are provisioned for use in this switch:
        24 10G port assignments are provisioned by the base switch license
         8 10G port assignments are provisioned by the 10G Port Upgrade license

 

Does this mean we can actually use 32 ports or just 8 ports.

 

Thanks

Moeen

Hi Moeen,

 

it means you can choose 32 Ports to use out of all 48 Ports.

Re: VDX6740 license options

In VDX 6740 and VDX 6740T there is a base license of 10G 24 ports.

 

as you have installed 8 additional 10G license, you have now 32 port 10G license in total.

 

24 10G + 8 10G = 32 10G dpod licenses. :)
