Nexus 5596UP - Verify Fiber Channel Licensing

The "show license usage" Show Command, shows you whether the FC/storage licensing is enabled, but it does not indicate how many ports are supported.  Is there a way to show this?

Nexus 5596UP - Verify Fiber Channel Licensing

All the Fibre Channel features of the Cisco Nexus device are packaged in the FC Plugin. When you enable FCoE, the switch software checks for the FC_FEATURES_PKG license. If it finds the license, the software loads the plugin. If the license is not found, the software loads the plugin with a grace period of 180 days.

After the FC Plugin is loaded, the following occurs:

    All Fibre Channel and FCoE related CLI are available

    The Fibre Channel interfaces of any installed Expansion Modules are available

Best regards,

Jim
