Brocade silkworm 200e

Hello,

For  a lab we buy our 4 first brocade 200e from a broker. The brocade seems  to be oem product and we don't know the manufacturer. We need a fabric  license for each brocade. Where, how can we buy this license ? Is it  possible ?

Thanks for your answers.

Maybe you can buy it at the broler?

But http://www.san-key.net/wholesale-san-switch-ltus.php sells them for sure.

Hi,

Dion, that is such a good link!

Thomast, in order to get the manufacturer, you could execute the following command:


sw1:root> configshow |grep vendor
fc4.fcp.vendorId:EMC

sw2:root> configshow |grep vendor
fc4.fcp.vendorId:DELL


and get the manufacturer. Once you got it, you can use the link provided by Dion or call directly to the manufacturer.

Only one License modell is available.

Fabric License

You need for all SWITCH member in the same Fabric a Fabric License otherwise you cannot E_Port from one switch to another.

To be honest, i do not know, if never had the buy licenses from another party the our Vendor (HP in this case).
It look legit though.
Give them/him a call and ask for references if you need reassuring
Otherwise try http://www.brocade.com/company/contacting-brocade/How-to-Buy.page for partners or brocade direct
