    Hi -

    "Please install POD1 and POD2 licenses" means you need to have all ports licensed to use Access gateway mode.

    Kind regards,

    Hi -

    to do ISL, you need to have Fabric License

    and trunking license

    just issue the licenseshow command and you´ll see what license you have installed on that switch

    and for ISL you need the license on both switches that will be connected to each other

    POD=port on demand

    As far as I know, trunking license is not needed to do a ISL. It's needed to do a trunk

    But I agree licenseshow on both sides of the link would help

    Kind regards,

    urgs,you right, i was already on step ahead, cause the logical next question would be how to trunk two isl together.

    and also might wanna have a look into this document, if you havent already

    To enable the trunk between two switches say between 5100(40 ports) and 300(24 ports).

    How many ports to be licensed?

    Trunk license is per port or it's for the whole switch?

    for trunking what is the minimum number of ports needed in both the

    switches?

    No extra ports need to be licensed to set up a trunk.

    Trunk license is per port or it's for the whole switch?

    Trunk license applies to the whole switch. You have to have it on the two switchs.

    for trunking what is the minimum number of ports needed in both the

    switches?

    2 Ports in each switch is the minimun number of ports required to stablish a trunk.
