Nothing of manuals is necessary to cnnect TWO Switch as ISL.

Your need to connect the cable from One Port Switch A to another Port to Switch B this is ISL.

1. Zoning configuration must be the same or one of the switches must be new without configuration. Check with cfgshow and ensure both switches have the same entries. If there is a mismatch or missing zones, create them manually.

2. Ensure that the switches have a unique domain id. Best practice is to set an insistent domain id.

3. Ensure all switch configuration params are the same on both.

Some of the important parameters are
