corrupt WWN card on a DCX (IBM badged 2499 384) after a FOS upgrade



We have a DCX IBM 2499 384 which has one 1 wwn card corrupt after switch fos upgrade.


I understand we need a replacement coded with the wwn number before swapping it out, any ideads how we get a card coded?


It's not under a support agreement, can we pay to get this?

In this case a factory programmed card with a matching LicenseId
