Is there a document describing the steps and pre-requisites for configuring two Silkworm 200e switches to share an ISL?
I have two seperate switches with zones unique to each. I need hosts attached to switch A to be able to access the storage attached to switch B. The switches are at seperate sites.
At the moment I have configured port 0 on each switch as follows:
#SWITCHNAME# portcfgshow 0
Area Number: 0
Speed Level: 2G
Fill Word: 0(Idle-Idle)
AL_PA Offset 13: OFF
Trunk Port OFF
Long Distance OFF
VC Link Init OFF
Locked L_Port OFF
Locked G_Port OFF
Disabled E_Port OFF
ISL R_RDY Mode ON
RSCN Suppressed OFF
Persistent Disable OFF
NPIV capability ON
QOS E_Port OFF
Port Auto Disable: OFF
However, the output of islshow is:
1: 0-> (incompatible)
My next thoughts are to give each switch a different domain ID (both have '1' at the moment), so I'm researching this command.
Is what I'm trying to achieve possible, and is the configuration I've got reasonable?

Any Fabric License , Entry Fabric or Full Fabric, is requiered to allows E_Port.
A Fabric consist 2 or More Switch connected as ISL.
I Assume, this One switch without Fabric License is a Entry Level Switch.
Some E200 was delivered by Brocade as EL and cannot be Upgrade as Full Fabric.
If the switch not have any Fabric License, in this case is ISL not allowed.

Thanks for clarifying that I do need a fabric license to create the ISL.
Is there any documentation that can assist with the configuration on the ISL and what changes you need to make to the two sets of zones on each switch?
