Regenerate licences for unsupported switch

  • 1.  Regenerate licences for unsupported switch

    Posted 04-23-2018 03:04 AM



    I have 2 old "HP 8/24c SAN Switch Pwr Pk+ BladeSystem c-Class", which apparently are Brocade 300 series switches. I wanted to reuse them in dev/test setup, but as I found out no licences are installed on the switches:

    SANR3:root> licenseshow
    No licenses installed.


    HP model and serial number suggests that theese should come with good set of licences.

    It is a dev/test setup and we don't have budget for getting those under support. 

    Is there a way to regenerate the licences that should have come with teh switch when purchased?

    if the switches are under maintenance, you have to open a TAC trough HP with a prof of purchase in order to get the license key.
