ISL for Silworm 4100s

I have been looking for documentation on using Inter Switch Links between Brocade switches. Currently I use 2 silkworm 4100s (2 for redundancy, each server has 2 HBAs, 1 HBA to 1 switch). I only have 2 ports left on each switch and would like to create an ISL between the 2 existing and the 2 new switches (they are also Brocade 4100s). I am having trouble though finding documentation on how to create the links between the two switches...does anyone know where I can find such documentation?

These documents make no reference to the 4100s...I assume this means that creating an ISL is the same regardless of the switch model?

Hi, this is correct, but not exist difference for ISL beetwen different Switch / Model or Manufactur. This have by all the same Functions.Also you can refer this safety.
