We have been supplied some temporary license keys for our Brocade 200E SAN switches that expire on 17th July 2008.
What I want to understand is when these licenses will actually expire, i.e at midnight on the 16th July (today!), or at midnight on the 17th July?
We are waiting on another set of temporary license keys for these switches (the permanent ones have been ordered, but haven't arrived yet!) and I need to know whether they have to be applied today if the license is going to expire at midnight tonight!!
Any info would be appreciated.

Hi, thanks for the info.
Licenseshow just displays the Expiry Date as "07/17/2008"...
Expiry Date 07/17/2008
I guess I will find out if we don't get the new license keys by the end of today :-/

FYI the temporary licenses expired at midnight last night, so when it says they expire on 07/17/2008 it actually means they expire at 23:59 on 07/16/2008! Definitely something to be aware of...
Fortunately we obtained our new license keys yesterday afternoon and applied them, so our fabric has remained unchanged
