    Hi Radek,

    No, it is not a trunking issue!
    Probably you do not have a fabric license, as I see.

    Due to missing fabric license switches can not join to any fabric.

    Some explanation: the cheapest SAN switches (typícally the 8 port entry level SAN switches) for example HP B type AM866A doe not have fabric license. (The vendors say: it is a "0 e" ports switch, or "this switch best for the single switch fabric").

    Do you have any error message?

    Best regards,

    Lajos

    dobos,

    You are right about missing Fabric License, however this issue is very strong because in order to add Trunking License, Fabric License is required first.

    radek,

    try with this Temporarily UTL Fabric License and let me know if work or not.

    you can add the license with command "licenseadd"

    Full Fabric (E_Port) License

    Hi,

    Firstly thank you for your message. I thought I needed only trunking license. If I add Full Fabric license, must I doing switch restart?

    Thank you!

    accord licenseshow output you posted here

    -->>My licenses on both swithes:

    SW001:admin> licenseshow

    Szzyyccbzdb00zzM:

        Trunking license

    the switch is Trunking licensed, you need just a Fabric License, and not trunking.

    --->>>If I add Full Fabric license, must I doing switch restart?

    try with "switchdisable" and the "switchenable"

    keep in mind, this command is traffic disruptive for short time.

    now, since you have added a temporarily fabric License you should be able to form a Fabric.

    keep in mind you must purchase a license for both switch ASAP, before the license expired.

    if you are satisfied, and all you question are answered, please close this thread.

    1: 15-> (incompatible)

    fabricshow

    is probable by Fabric License you must take a reboot.
