A few things you can check, Is the license the correct one for that model of switch? has the correct wwn been used when validating the licence key?

thanks for your valuable reply,
please note the upgrade license P/N: T5463A and the P/N for simple SAN connection kit: AK241A. and regarding the license validation, actually I didnt do it so are you sure its needs the WWN name for switch, coz who do it didnâ t ask me about anything about the switch
thank you again
