Hello Joaquim ,

 

for a ISL port you need a  trunking licence on each switch .

 

specifics commands :

portcfgtrunkport command to enable trunking on a port ,  ex for slot 1 port 3 : portcfgtrunkport 1/3 1  ( mode 1 enable )

switchcfgtrunk to enable trunking on all port.

 

file in attached  with procedures in chapter ' managing trunking connnections' , p 519 .

Hi,

 

furthermore if I understand you correctly you want to merge 2 existing fabrics into one. To non-disruptive perform this you need to make sure that both zone sets are merged into one and active on both switches PRIOR to connecting them, otherwise the ISLs will segment. You can do that manually or BNA could help you with this.

Secondly of course the Domain IDs need to be unique/different on these two switches.
