IMPORTANT:
Most 2408 FCoE Converged Network Switch units shipped with FOS 6.1.2_cee1 did not include
this license and must have it installed before upgrading to FOS 6.3.0. Failure to do so will result
in the disabling of FC ports after the upgrade. Contact HP Support to obtain this license key if
your 2408 switch does not already have it installed.
FCoE—This license enables Fibre Channel over Ethernet functionality on the 2408 FCoE Converged
Network Switch. Without the FCoE license, the 2408 FCoE Converged Network Switch is a pure
Layer 2 Ethernet switch and will not support FCoE bridging or FCoE Forwarding (FCF) capabilities.

Temporary license support

HP does not currently support temporary licenses or Universal Temporary Licenses.
Previously licensed software now included with base FOS
The capabilities described in this section are included as part of the base FOS. No additional purchase
or licensing is necessary.
NOTE:
Starting with FOS 6.1, Advanced Zoning and WebTools licenses are not necessary. These features
are enabled automatically on all products running FOS 6.1 or later.

certain cases, HP might add proprietary supplemental functions to those specified in the standards.
