I just need some guidance on how to license ports on VDX6740 switches operating in VCS mode. I have voucher numbers for the product already, and I understand the part where I would have to generate a license string/key based on the voucher numbers as it appears on our account on the ExtremeNetworks customer portal.
What I do not really understand are the next steps - do I login into the individual switches and apply the license string or do I login with the VCS IP address of the switch to apply the license string?
Another thing I noticed is that when I did "sh dpod" on the switch, some ports are disconnected but they still hold on to a license. Any ideas on how to release the license to go back into a pool? My understanding is that for DPOD, a license is only applied to a port when it is enabled - that is, connected to a device and operational. Am I missing something?
I have never had the opportunity to apply licenses to ports in the VDX 6740, so any advice would be highly appreciated.
