Configuring ISL Between Two Fabrics

Hi All

I am planning to configure ISL between two fabrics.

Details:

Fabric 1: Two DS200B Switches with version v6.2.1b, both the switches are connected via ISL.

Fabric 2: Two DS300B Switches with version v7.0.1, both the switches are connected via ISL.

Can I configure ISL between Fabric 1 and Fabric 2.

Thanks:

Shailendra...

sure you can ISL both Fabric, but keep in mind if you want to connect Fabric 1 with Fabric 2,at the end you have a Single Fabric, this is not a reccomende best Practices.

second, all switch in a ingle Fabric must have Unique Domain ID, and finally check with the Reklease Notes about FOS Compatibility.

Hi TechHelp24,

Yes, I need to merge both the Fabrics and create one single Fabric. Also I want to retain all the zoning information which is present.

Is there any document available on the same. If yes please share.
