Checking the License on Blade SAN Switch

Sally had a customer question:




How to check the license on Blade SAN Switch? We need to upgrade blade enclosure and not knowing if Blade SAN Switch are 8/12 or 8/24.




Terri had a way:




From the Brocade cli (command line) run the following command:


Licenseshow (not case-sensitive)


If you see a 12-port license installed, it is a 8/24. If you see no port licenses installed, it is a 8/12.




That should help Sally. Any other methods that you use?
