Usage Guidelines



Use this command only under the guidance of an Extreme Networks representative.

When you issue the command, the following message is displayed:

This will clear the license information stored in EEPROM and also delete the license file (license.xlic). Are you sure you want to continue? (y/N)

Using the port-speed license keyword removes all port speed licensing. Port speed licenses increase the rate from 10G to 100G on QSFP28+ ports 1 through 24 on ExtremeSwitching X870-96x-8c switches.
