Regarding FX8-24 Intergrated Routing License


    I have one local DCX with FX8-24(or 7800) and want to connect the remote DCX with FX8-24(7800) using FCIP without mergring. I must configure VEX_Port on local FX8-24. Do I need to buy Integrated Routing license? Or FX8-24 or 7800 has IR itself already?

    Thank you!

you need Integrating routing license to create (V)EX-port.

Depending on your OEM (that's the case for instance with EMC & IBM), Integrating routing is an optional licence.

Kind regards,
