Hi, you may need to run this as root user after version 8.0 , see procedure below.Verify that the switch is using the Dynamic POD method.
a. Run the command:
FC_switch_A_1:admin> licenseport -show
24 ports are available in this switch
Full POD license is installed
Dynamic POD method is in use
Note: FabOS versions before 8.0 run the following commands as admin and versions 8 and later run them as root.
b. Enable the root user.
If the root user is already disabled by Brocade, enable the root user as shown in the following example:
FC_switch_A_1:admin> userconfig --change root -e yes
FC_switch_A_1:admin> rootaccess --set consoleonly
c. Run the license command:
FC_switch_A_1:root> licenseport -show
d. Change the license method to Dynamic:
licenseport --method dynamic
Note: If the Dynamic POD method is not in use (if POD method is in static) you must change the license assignment method to dynamic. Skip this step if the Dynamic POD method is in use.
FC_switch_A_1:admin> licenseport --method dynamic
The POD method has been changed to dynamic.
Please reboot the switch now for this change to take effect
Reboot the switch:
Warning: This command would cause the switch to reboot
and result in traffic disruption.
Are you sure you want to reboot the switch [y/n]?yBR Bjorn
