ISL Issues

Hi Guys,

Just need some clarifications on ISL (Not trunking, just ISL)

For ISL to work. I understand there is no license needed to purchase.

But what do i need to see under licenseshow to make sure the ISL link will work.

Assuming the switch to be merge is brand new and without any configuration.

And the Domain ID has already been set to 2.

Re: ISL Issues

From licensing standpoint you need Fabric license which comes standard with most switches nowadays.

If you have this license, E-Ports can be used thus ISLs can be formed.
