My customer has a VDX6940-64s and the 10gig ports were activated when they activated the port, how do you unassign a license from a port and reassign it to a different port?

Goldtel,

This is done within the "dpod" configuration. To release a dynamic port license, first ensure that the port is shutdown and then use the following:

code:
conf t
dpod [port_number]
release


To manually reserve a port, use the following:

code:
conf t
dpod [port_number]
reserve


example:

code:
sw0# show run
...
dpod 3/0/1
reserve
!
dpod 3/0/2
reserve
!
dpod 3/0/3
reserve
!
dpod 3/0/4
!
sw0# conf t
Entering configuration mode terminal
sw0(config)# int te 3/0/2
sw0(conf-if-te-3/0/2)# shutdown

sw0(conf-if-te-3/0/2)# exit
sw0(config)# dpod 3/0/2
sw0(config-dpod-3/0/2)# release
sw0(config-dpod-3/0/2)# exit
sw0(config)# dpod 3/0/4
sw0(config-dpod-3/0/4)# reserve
sw0(config-dpod-3/0/4)# end
sw0# show run
...
dpod 3/0/1
reserve
!
dpod 3/0/2
!
dpod 3/0/3
reserve
!
dpod 3/0/4
reserve
!
