Re: ISL connectivity

Is courius...

Usually IBM delivery all Director with Fabric License.

In order to connect TWO or more switch in ISL, all Switch in the same Fabric must have a Fabric License installed.

Re: ISL connectivity

Like TechHelp24 said, you need a Fabric License on every switch in the fabric.

If you haven't got it installed yet, install it. If you don't own a Fabric License for the 384B buy it.

Re: ISL connectivity

The switch already have lots of licenses so it may be that the switch is missing this license for some reason.

I'd contact IBM and ask for the license.
