i found mb why i dont't see this commands

QSFP+ ports are available only in 44 Port mode and 64 Port mode

IBMBaldeNetwork#show software-key
Enabled FoD Key(s):
  none

Active FoD Key(s):
  none

Non-Reusable Demo License(s):
  none


NOTE: A reboot is required to make an Enabled Key become the Active Key (when different).

What that mean?? i am by UPGRADE 1 for this SWITCH at this same? or not.... what at this "software-key"

Liks,

Make sure you are using the proper command line interface mode for the switches depending on what the Application Guide calls for whether its IBM-NOS or ISCLI.

To determine what that is do the following (this will require a reboot)-

>> BNT - Main# boot
------------------------------------------------------------
[Boot Options Menu]
     stack     - Stacking Menu
     sched     - Scheduled Switch Reset Menu
     image     - Select software image to use on next boot
     conf      - Select config block to use on next boot
     netboot   - NetBoot and NetConfig menu
     qsfp40g   - QSFP 40G Ports Menu
     mode      - Select CLI mode to use on next boot
     prompt    - Prompt for selectable CLI mode
     gtimg     - Download new software image via SFTP/FTP/TFTP
     ptimg     - Upload selected software image via SFTP/FTP/TFTP
     reset     - Reset switch
     cur       - Display current boot options

>> BNT - Boot Options# cur
Current running image version:7.8.5
Currently set to boot software image1, active config block.
NetBoot: disabled, NetBoot tftp server:  , NetBoot cfgfile:
Current CLI mode set to IBMNOS-CLI with selectable prompt disabled.
Current FLASH software:
  image1: version 7.8.5, downloaded  8:38:34 Fri Jul 11, 2014
  image2: version 7.7.9, downloaded 14:44:23 Thu Mar 20, 2014
  boot kernel: version 7.8.5
Currently scheduled reboot time: none


As far as your FOD question. It doesn't look like you have any keys enabled that need to be activated if you did then you would need to reboot the stack to apply these changes.

iscli

ohh really Application Guide for Networking OS 7.8

IBMBaldeNetwork#boot ?
  cli-mode             Set CLI mode for subsequent system bootup
  configuration-block  Configure bootup configuration block
  image                Switch between bootup image files
  netboot              Enable netconfig for loading config over network at bootup
  stack                Stack boot commands

IBMBaldeNetwork(config)#boot ?
  cli-mode             Set CLI mode for subsequent system bootup
  configuration-block  Configure bootup configuration block
  image                Switch between bootup image files
  netboot              Enable netconfig for loading config over network at bootup
  schedule             Set reboot schedule
  stack                Stack boot commands
  strict               Enable security strict mode

How i can configure QSPF from ISCLI? or only from NOS?
Thx you for help

From the document name it sounds like you would need to use the IBM-NOS but that command is a Cisco command and judging from the fact that your other 'Show' commands work I'd say you are using the right CLI mode. Also I read the documentation you reference and it sounds like you need to have Upgrade 1 activated and installed like you mentioned in a previous post.

Here is the output from my switches (I am in IBM-NOS but the output is the same)

>> BNT - Information# swkey
Enabled FoD Key(s):
  Upgrade1   Upgrade2

Active FoD Key(s):
  Upgrade1   Upgrade2


Non-Reusable Demo License(s):
  none

NOTE: A reboot is required to make an Enabled Key become the Active Key (when different).

Under Active FoD Key(s) you should see either Upgrade 1 or both Upgrade 1/2 to enable those ports. Try contacting FOD@US.IBM.COM for information on how to get your keys downloaded. Once you have the keys we can help you enable them if needed.

Thanks!
