Brocade 6510 licenseport capability?

I have a pair of new Brocade 6510 switches with no POD licenses (so I only have 24 ports/sfps licensed).  To match our other switches, I want to set up the new switches so my ISLs are in the last two ports on the 6510s (ports 46,47).  Looking at the FOS Admin guide, there is a licenseport command that would allow me to move the POD port license from ports 22 and 23 to ports 46 and 47; however, when I issue the command on the 6510s I get a reply of "licenseport failed : this command is not supported on this product".  Is it not possible to move port licenses around on the 65xx switches?

Re: Brocade 6510 licenseport capability?

port 0-23 are the default Licensed Port in Brocade 6510 and cannot be moved.

when you add new POD License, port are enabled ascending, but cannot be move to other Free Octet/POD group.
