Question

Is it possible to have the 10G ports enabled on an ExtremeCloud X440-G2?
 
If so, how would the license be applied, given that the user never logs into the switch?

Environment
  • ExtremeCloud
  • ExtremeCloud X440-G2
Answer
  • If the switch is bought with the 10G license, then the license is pushed to the switch automatically 
  • If the license is bought separately from the switch, my understanding is that the user redeems the license using the normal process and once redeemed (and associated with a S/N), the license gets pushed to ExtremeCloud who then pushes it to the switch automatically. To do the latter, ExtremeCloud is getting all the licenses that are being redeemed on the site and only applies the ones associated to switches with an entitlement.
Additional notes

This is only true for the 10GbE licenses and is not true for any other licenses (i.e. Advanced Edge, AVB) since the features (i.e. routing, AVB) in the other licenses cannot currently be managed via the cloud.
