I have just upgraded SW1 of 2, from FW 7.4.1e to 7.4.2a, without issue, But on SW2 I get the following message
"The following item(s) need to be addressed before downloading the specified firmware:
Upgrade of FOS is not possible due to an invalid license key. Please contact your reseller"
I have compared the licence's on both switch's
SW1 has ( This upgraded ok to 7.4.2a )
8 Gig FC NA
Second Ports on Demand license - additional 8 port upgrade NA
First Ports on Demand license - additional 8 port upgrade NA
Extended Fabric,Fabric Watch (Fabric Vision capable),Performance Monitor (Fabric Vision capable),Trunking,Adaptive Networking - obsolete,Server Application Optimization - obsolete NA
SW2 has the following ( not upgraded still on 7.4.1e )
Fabric,Fabric Watch (Fabric Vision capable),Performance Monitor (Fabric Vision capable),Trunking,Full Ports on Demand license - additional 16 port upgrade NA
Enhanced Group Management
8 Gig FC NA
It seems strange that all previous updates have not been an issue.
Any advice / help please

assuming both switches are B300s...
I am wondering why the failing switch has a Full POD license (16 ports), while the other one has POD1 and POD2 like I would expect it and like it is on the "working" switch.
There has been some license security enhancement starting with 7.4.2 if I remember correctly...
It could be possible that you really need POD1 and POD2 from your OEM or where you got this switch from.
If you give me the WWN or the output of licenseidshow I can at least tell you what was initially setup for this unit. You can send it in private to me if you want.
Doubt it but you can also try to remove the EGM license from the failing switch as a test.
