    I have two old IBM2005-B16 (i think it corresponds to 200E) with Fos 5.1.0. I need to connect these switches to two new switch IBM Blade Brocade 8gB. The output ov licenseshow of old IBM2005-B16 :

    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx:

        Web license

    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx:

        Zoning license

    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx:

        Ports on Demand license - additional 4 port upgrade

    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx:

        Ports on Demand license - additional 4 port upgrade

    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx:

        Fabric license

    The output of licenseshow of the new switches :

    brocade8Gb_bay8:admin> licenseshow

    xxxxxxxxxxxx

       Fabric license

    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx:

        Enhanced Group Management license

    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx:

        8 Gig FC license

    I must update FOS version to 6.2.x but before start I need to know if I can connect via ISL the switches in two fabric with the actual license.

    My question is :Fabric License is the  same of Full Fabric License?

    License output show OK.

    BTW, and FYI at next time is not necessary to edited all the License Key with xxx, beause the LIC are unique and cannot be used to another switch.
