BNA 12.3.4 Professional Version problem with dashboard widgets - "there are no values to display" or "this feature requires the purchase of Netowrk advisor"

Hello

So I am running a new 12.3.4 64 Bit on W2k8r2 for a small daul fabric of 2 core brocade 300. One fabric has an ISL in full fabric mode to a Brocade IBM Bladecnter 4 Gb/sec FCSM. All swithces shows up fine

All switches have the enterprise license.

Tthe dashboard widgets such as

1) Top Proudct CPU/Memory Utilization

2) Top Initiator/Target Port Util

 

all show "there are no values to display?

 

Alos from Monitor->Performance-> top Talker I get an error "this feature requires the purchase of Netowrk advisor".

I am using Professioanl to monitor exaclty 2 fabrics with a total port count of 64.

Here are the licneses on the 2 IBM braned 300 model 24 port switches.

Hi,

 

Features such as Toptalkers require license "professional PLUS" or "Enterprise" to get enabled. with "professional" many features, specially performance-wise, are not available.

 

Rgds,

Thanks Felipon

However in data sheets given to me by Brocade Ses the features differences are not shown what is shown are fabrics and port limitations.

Asked my Se contacts for data sheet list of features not included with Professional.

Thanks
