Feedback:

# Lenovo Enterprise support please update your port-on-demand upgrade license instructions as the instructions is still reflecting http://swportal.brocade.com (now broadcom)

# lenovo Enterprise support has no clue about port-on-demand license generation (support escalated to IBM - focus on break fix).

 

 

pre-requisites:

# FC switch chassis.licenseID/License ID: 10:00:00:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx

# Transaction key(s) (in 6559 8 POD (port-on-demand) upgrade paper

 

 

follow the steps below,and you will be able to generate your port-on-demand (POD) software license key

01. create a broadcom account

02. upgrade to enterprise account (no need to provide brocade serial number, just fill in the mandatory fields)

03. log off/login to broadcom support portal

04. select "brocade products"

05. select "licensing"

06. add "Transaction key(s)"

07. next (enter chassis.licenseID/License ID for each Transaction Key
