Element Manager


Why is it that some of our DCX 8510 Directors are showing up as single blade switches that cannot be managed for frmware downloads. Also the Element Manager is grayed out. We have 4 DCX 8510s with firmware v.7.0.0.a and 2 of the DCXs show up as Directors and the other 2 show as single blade switches.

Re: Element Manager

Do you have on all directors the same license installed?

Re: Element Manager

I second what Andreas said.

Looks like Enhanced Group Management license is missing for some reason. Normally it's shipped pre-installed on every 8G+ platform...

Hope this helps,
