Re: FOR ISL

Hi, for only two switches in a fabric you should not need an extra license.

There is a "full fabric license" - but as far as I can see this is only for fabric larger than two or for switches.

There are more details about this in the fabric OS release notes.

Hi Sharjeel,

this fabric licence can give you Full Fabric connectivity with limitation of number of hops supported by HP, see HP SAN Design

So, another fabric licence named 'Extended Fabric' is needed if you SFP's very long distances (>10Km)
