ISL between Brocade 300 and Brocade 5100


The answer seems easy, but I tell you: I have 2 brocade switches, a 5100 and a 300.
I want to form an ISL between them but it gives me a license failure. At the time of requesting a license "Full Fabric" to our manager of purchases of Brocade
indicates to us that that license usually comes in the purchase of any switch. The message is:
 Online      FC  E-Port  segmented,10:00:00:05:1e:de:d2:f8 (No Fabric License)
  1:  7->  7 10:00:00:05:1e:de:d2:f8 (incompatible)
Thank you all for your time.

This depends about your OEM, you need to check with your OEM about the standard license delivery they are doing for each type of switch.
