Re: How to stabilish DC - DR Brocade 300

Hi kabir,

you clearly have two entry-level units without a Fabric license. Those can't merge into fabric. Extended Fabric license only provides support for long-distance links (E-Ports) whereas Fabric license allows E-Port functionality in general.

Hope this helps,

Linar
