I've got a weird issue, regarding license installations on MDS 9148S
Level 1
Level 1

Hi. I really need a help urgently.


I tried to install new licenses on 2 switches and i successfully installed one of the switch.


here is the problem  i did exactly same procedures on other switch.


1. during the installation - i got this massege "server line in license should have "this_host_ANY". 

2. Used "install license <filename> format" Command, suddenly it started to install, but when i checked     the status of the ports, they are not activated.

    ichecked the license usage, interfaces and used "port-licence acquire" command on each port.            nothing's  changed. it was keep showing "the license is not available"

3. So, i tried clear the license and reinstall, using clear license bootflash: <filename> but i got "server is in use> message, there were no configruations on the ports at all. Re-installation also failed, it says there is already same licence on this switch, it doen't let me clear or re-install.. 


When i issued show license file, there was a file, i think i did everything i could. 


Does anyone have a similar problem like above?  


Please help me solve this problem, please share the solutions if anyone has solved this kind of problem.
