Move 16port upgrade license StorageWorks 4/64

We have a number of StorageWorks 4/64 Base each with a single T4411A upgrade license installed.  Am i allowed to to move one of the 16port licenses onto one of the other switches, so that all 64 ports are then licensed on one of the switches.

If so, how is this done?

Regards

I do not know if there is some sort of license migration program; I doubt there is. You would need to check with HP Sales. I do know the licenses are tied to the WWN of their switch, so it would not be possible to just copy the license key to a second switch.

Would HP Sales really work with this?

 

I'd check with https://webware.hp.com - they are the licensing folks. But maybe it's worth a shot to try both.

 

But, I wonder if they have the possibility to invalidate a license.

Hypothetically speaking, if you do get them to give you a new license for the new switch, would you remove the one on the old switch?
