Re: SilkWorm 200E and ports activation

konradg,

this error is caused due to two reason:

1) the License is wrong generated

2) you have a Entry Level 200E Switch.

By 2) The reason is, some 200E Switch Model are not upgradable by License.

Check with the Brocade Support the exact Model Number you switch.
