Hi everyone,sorry for another newbie question...I've two Brocade SAN switches for HP enclosure for which I've installed a license to allow the enablement of all ports. I've inserted my license in the switch and it is reported as correctly regesitered.
My question is:There is a way to enable those ports withoth rebooting or disabling the entire switch??In suggestions presented after license install "portenable" command is suggested (http://www.brocade.com/downloads/documents/html_product_manuals/FOS_730_CLI/wwhelp/wwhimpl/common/html/wwhelp.htm#href=commands_a_z.portEnable.html&single=true)Is this the correct command in order to enable the newly registered ports without compromising/interrupting the current active connections to the switch??Thank you in advance for any reply,Best Regards,Paul
Yes. Ports can be enabled/disabled at will without adverse effects on the rest of the switch.
Could also use to make the port enable persistent:
Thank you for your answer....I think something with the above command is not supported on my switches because this is the output afer port enable:BCD-BLADE:admin> portenable 14Port 14: Port enable failed because the port is persistently disabledBCD-BLADE:admin> portcfgpersistentenable 14portcfgpersistentenable failed. Operation not supported.
Am I missing somethin??
from the name "BCD-BLADE" show to me this is a Blade Switch Inside the Blade Center.
is correct ?
If yes, and no POD License is Installed, unlicensed Port are permanent as persistent disable and cannot be enable.
thank you for your answer.I've figured out my issue... I reserved license on port and after that I was able to enable ports.
