I am running two IBM B300s and I've come across the following error while upgrading from 7.4.1 to 7.4.2:
"Upgrade of FOS is not possible due to an invalid license key. Please contact your reseller"
Switch 1 upgraded fine, but I see this issue on Switch 2.
License on Switch 2: "Open Frame Redirection,Full Ports on Demand license - additional 16 port upgrade"
I came across the following related post:
It appears the 16port license needs to be split in two POD licenses, but I don't have a support contract for it.
Would Brocade be able to sort out the license? or am I stuck with the 7.4.1 build?

Does SW1 have x2 8-Port POD licenses? I am having this same issue, but both FC switches have "Full Ports on Demand license - additional 16 port upgrade license"

Correct, the switch with two 8-port licenses continues to be able to upgrade to newer FOS 7x releases.
The other switch with 16-port license is still stuck on the old FOS version.
