Another ISL question (trunk + TI zones)

I would like to use TI Zones for traffic isolation. Currently I have 6 ISLs in one trunk group.

I would like to divide in onto two trunk groups, 3+3 or 4+2 and put one group into TI Zone.

Q: How can I have two trunk groups?

My only idea is to physically move some ports to other "8-pack", that means 0-7, 8-15, etc. It is inconvenient, because any reconfiguration requires physical reconnects, traveling to remote site, etc. Can it be done using commands?

Re: Another ISL question (trunk + TI zones)

Yes, move the ISL's to another portgroup but you've considered that to be not a real option.

Thus change setting (Speed, Long Distance for examp) for desired ISL's to force a split.

Remember to put all trunk port in the TI zone or it will behave inpredictable
