And what about EFCM?

on ‎07-21-2010 07:25 AM

You may want to contact you Reseller or Brocade to obtain a LIC and Activation Key for EFCM, if lost.

EFCM LIC and Activation key, AFAIK cannot be generated Online.

By Active Maintenance Contract when you Purchase/Upgrade to DCFM you get a New Upgrade License.

How do you transfer licences now? Nov 2012. I do not have an option in the licencing portal to Transfer licences, only to generate new ones. FOS specifically in this case.

License can be transfered only by Switch Replacement Procedure.

Where would I find this procedure?

On another note this document does not show how to Transfer a licence so the title is a little misleading.

--->>> Where would I find this procedure?

The procedure is descripted as well in MyHome, however as mentioned License cannot move/transfer by Customer itself withouth Transaction key from one switch to another one, excepted by Switch replacement.

In order to do that , you have to open a Call by brocade or they OEM Supplier and in most case 99,999% the Supplier provide for License Transfer after replacement.

for details go to:

myhome -> Licensing Tools -> Enter the Software Portal

Welcome to License Management in Brocade's Software Portal

Please mouse over (hover cursor) on License Management menu to Generate/Transfer/Query licenses

The drop down list of product types will enable you to manage each unique product type.
