Those numbers were changed to protect my innocent switch. Cause frankly Im not sure if those license values can be reused by a crawler. I'm not exactly Fibre savy.

As the Fibre turns.
Still not cooperating with me. As I learn more and more about Fibre though Im seeing some issues pop up.
I have a silkworm 200e which I believe is a 4gig switch which connectes to a Brocade 8/24(i just swapped it with a known good working model) which is connecting to my 4gig fibre mezzanine cards in my servers.
Therefore it is my thought that the Brocade 8/24 models that I am using should be 4/24 models instead.
could this be the culprit?

Found the problem
It was actually three part problem.
1 the SFP i was originally using was incorrect and not compatible with the brocade switch.
2 the brocade and mezz cards were not in compatible slots on the chassis
3 The chassis midplane was not configure correctly for the switchs installed.
Thank You everyone for your assistance.
