Re: Command View Licensing + ISL Connectivity in Fabric

1. Once you have a License Entitlement Certificate, you can generate your Command View Licenses at:

http://www.webware.hp.com

2. You can use any ports to be ISLs, but remember the switch domains must be different and the PID formats must be the same BEFORE you connect the two switches.

And be aware there are entry level switches (4/8 Base, 16 ports but only 8 enabled) that does not support ISL's without an additional license.

Hope this helps!

Re: Command View Licensing + ISL Connectivity in Fabric

"I have the switch" What switch you have?

Just in case of a HP StorageWorks 4/8 Base SAN Switch A7984A you need to purchase a license.

See

http://h18006.www1.hp.com/storage/saninfrastructure/switches/sanswitch48/index.html

"The 4/8 Base model provides single-switch connectivity for a new, simple SAN installation and connects to storage and servers only"

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12345_div/12345_div.html

"An optional Power Pack software bundle can be purchased separately and includes Fabric Watch, ISL Trunking, Extended Fabric and Advanced Performance Monitor."

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
