Managed SAN switch count greater than 90% of licensed switch count

Hi

 

Running Brocade Network Advisor v12.4.1.

We keep seeing Warning events for: "Managed SAN switch count greater than 90% of licensed switch count"

License details screen shows...

   Ports     Managed Count=1190   Maximum Limit=15000

   Fabrics   Managed Count=2   Maximum Limit=100

 

We have a lot of Dell Blade Chassis with Brocade in built M5424 switches running in access gateway mode. Presume it is these that have bumped up our FC switch count considerably.

 

Is there any way to see the maximum limit on the number of switches that BNA supports?

 

Regards

Under Server/Options/Software Configuration/Memory Allocation we had SAN Network Size set to Small.

This limits the number of products to 40 - we had 38 products counted.

Have changed the setting to medium which increases the number of products supported to 100.
