"configremoveall", license is gone

I have a switch, someone executed the command "configremoveall" to remove the entire zoning configuration, unfortunately the command removed the license keys also. We have not stored those license keys in any place.

Please anyone tell me, is there anyway that i can retrieve the license keys from the switch ? Thank you.

Re: "configremoveall", license is gone


you are a very World Champion to make Switch unusable. Respectfully.

To ake a longer story short!

If you have a old "supportsave" output, with a little luck the license key was stored in the file.

if no, you can contact the Brocade Support Team if you have a valid Support Contract to obtain a Replacement Key.

BTW: 3200 and 3800 Switch are End of Life and End of Support.
