Re: issue port 10Gb on Switch 1Gb EN2092

I don't think there is as much an issue as you were misled about the 10GBe ports. See the information below. It appears that the internal switch ports remain at 1 GBe even if all of the licenses are activated. The last license key looks to enable 4x10GBe EXTERNAL ports not INTERNAL.
The part numbers for the upgrades, 90Y3562 and 49Y4298, include the following items:
Feature on Demand Activation Flyer
Upgrade activation key
The base switch and upgrades are as follows:
49Y4294 is the part number for the physical device and comes with 14 internal 1 GbE ports enabled,
one to each compute node and ten external 1 GbE ports enabled to connect to a top-of-rack switch or
other 1 GbE devices. All external 1 GbE ports have RJ-45 connectors.
90Y3562 (Upgrade 1) can be applied on the base switch to take full advantage of four-port adapter
cards installed in each compute node. This upgrade enables 14 additional internal ports, for a total of
28 ports. The upgrade also enables 10 additional external 1 GbE ports for a total of twenty 1 GbE
uplinks. This upgrade requires the base switch.
49Y4298 (10Gb Uplinks or Upgrade 2) can be applied on the base switch when you need more uplink
bandwidth. The upgrade enables four external 10 Gb uplinks with SFP+ connectors (SFP+
transceivers or DAC cables are not included). This upgrade requires the base switch.
