I have a customer who has bought a Brocade 300 last year with 8 ports and now he wants to buy from Lenovo, the feature for the extra 8 port activation plus a new Lenovo Brocade 300 switch to operate along with the previous Brocade 300.
can this work ? Is there anything we should do in terms of firmware e.t.c ?
I have deployed licenses purchased from an OEM to switches purchased from a different OEM.
What you buy/get is a transaction code. You take that to a licensing website and enter it along with identifiers from the switch, and a license key is generated. That process is the same regardless of where the switch comes from or whose name is on it.
While I have not worked with Lenovo, I have done this with IBM...which is pretty close.
