brocade san switch license question


I am installing a new 7-mode metro cluster using fabric attached sas disk.

I purchased a license bundle for the brocade san switches.

The switches came with only the fabric watch license installed, not the bundle.

I checked the customer license area and found the serial number of my switch and displayed the license information which included:


I tried adding the code listed to my switch but it says it is an invalid license-key.

What I don't know is if this is indeed the bundle license that I can add to my switch of if there is some part of this process I'm missing.

I suspect that even though the code does not match the code listed when I display the installed license on the switch, that the code listed on the netapp support site is not in fact the license code needed to install on the switch or for that matter the bundle license either.


Any thoughts?



I figured it out. they are activation keys that can be used on the brocade site to generate a key.
