Why does the loaded patch fail to work
It takes a long time to load and run a patch. The user may run the patch before the patch is loaded successfully, causing an operation failure. You are advertised to run the patch after the system displays the information indicating that the patch is loaded successfully.

Load and run a patch
Before loading a patch to a switch, upload the correct and valid patch package to the root directory (Flash:/) of the storage medium on the switch. Method 1: Load and then run the patch. patch load patch.pat all active //Load the patch in the system and then activate it. patch run all //Run the patch. Method 2: Load and run the patch simultaneously. patch load patch.pat all run //Load and run the patch.

How is a license loaded for SVF
When a license is loaded for SVF, you only need to load the license on the parent switch, not on the leaf switch. Perform the following operations: 1. Apply for a license and upload it to the parent switch. You only need to apply for a license for the parent switch, not for the leaf switch. If the parent switch is a standalone device, you can use its ESN to apply for a license. If the parent switch is a stack of two devices, you can apply for a common license with the ESNs of both devices, or apply for a license for each ESN. 2. Run the license active file-name command in the user view to activate the license file you uploaded. - If there are multiple license files, run the license active file-name command multiple times and specify different values for file-name. The system will then find the matching ESN to activate the license files. - If there is only one license file, run the license active file-name command only once. 3. Run the display license command to check whether a license file has been loaded.
