since FabOS rel. 6.0.0 are WEB and Zoning License Native and not longer required. ( see in the release notes )
This is the reason you unknown error.
You must remove the License key from the switch, before remove it save the license key in any case you will downgrade to 5.x you need this.
WEB and Zoning are Native by FabOS 6.1 and not by 6.0

Thanks for your response.
The problem by removing the license key is that the key is also for the trunking and other features.
also, if rel 6.0 has zoning and web native why cant i see the zoning tab or the zoning manager ?
I have the same problem with a switch that has a 5.3.0 firmware.

Tal and null,
Sorry Please, i mean begin with FabOS 6.1.0 and not 6.0.0
Again, begin with FabOS 6.1.0, are only WEB and Zoning native, any License is here not longer requiered.
For all other Feature like, Trunking, Performance Monitor, and other you must have a valide license.
See attached Rel.Notes

by the current loaded Rel. FabOS 5.3.x, are the both License installed in the switch ?
Check with the command "licenseshow" and post the output here.
what is the Switch Type do you have ?
If you have any Switch listed in the FOS 6.1 Rel. Notes, you can upgrade to 6.1 in any case the License are lost.
