E Ports on Brocade 20-Port 4Gb SAN Module

Guys, I have a simple question,


Does the Brocade 20-Port 4Gb SAN Switch Module for IBM blade chassis support E ports to setup an ISL? or does it require a special licenses?


Cheers,

For ISL you do not need license. Only for trunking you need "Trunking License".

--->>>For ISL you do not need license.

accordly this case, most OEM Blade Switch coming with a Fabric License, at this point you are correct.

keep in mind some Standalone Switch require a Fabric License if you want to ISL "E_Port"
