Can not find a link to "Generate a license key"

I have two "Full Fabric Upgrade" licenses that I need to generate a license key for (we bought two Brocade 200e switches a year ago and are just now installing them).

The Brocade web site says  "To Activate - If you are a Brocade customer activating licenses for Brocade software products or Brocade M-Class products (former McDATA products) please login to MyBrocade (registration required) and navigate to software licenses located in the Technical Resource Center."

I registered and logged in but I can not find "software licenses located in the Technical Resource Center" anywhere.  I need a link to where I can generate my license keys.

Thanks - Dave

When I go to "My Home" - there is no visble link called "Licensing Tools".  So I am still lost.

Thanks

My account was not properly set up.  Once I did that - the "Licensing Link" you mentioned did show up on "My Home" page.

Thanks - Dave

Same issue. Thanks Brocade, I had to spend 10 minutes updating my "profile" with information that is totally meaningless just to get a license key I already paid for. Why not take the licensing out of this section.
