Installing and Configuring the Edge Switch 2/32
Fiber connection (FICON) management server (FMS)
These features allow open systems or FICON host control of the switch and are
mutually exclusive. Only one of these features can be installed at a time.
Features are enabled through a feature key that is encoded to work with the serial
number of a unique switch. A feature key is a case-sensitive alphanumeric string with
dashes every four characters.
Configure HP Flexport Technology Feature Key
This feature key enables additional port function. The factory default settings enable
16 of the 32 ports, and this feature key enables additional ports. Until this feature is
enabled the additional ports will display as Not Installed in the Port Operational State
window of the Hardware View and Port List View pages. See
instructions on configuring this feature key and on upgrading the number of ports.
Configure OSMS Feature Key
NOTE: HP does not support OSMS.
Perform this procedure to configure the OSMS feature key. This feature enables host
control of the switch from an open-systems interconnection (OSI) device attached to a
switch port. The device communicates with the switch through the Fibre Channel
common transport (FC-CT) protocol.
To configure the OSMS feature key:
1. Set the switch offline.
2. At the Hardware View page for the selected switch, choose Configure >
Features. The Configure Feature Key dialog box displays, as shown in
