Move Brocade Port Licence

On a Brocade switch I had the need recently to move the port on demand licence  (POD) from one port to another on the same switch. The procedure to transfer a brocade licence is as follows:

In this example we move the licence  from port 8 to 2:

1 Disable the port you no longer

portcfgpersistentdisable 8

2 Remove the licence  from the port its not required on

licenseport -release 8

3 If the port you wish to use is disabled, enable it

 portenable 2

That’s it job done
