Switch Group diagram/map misleading?

I have two fabrics.  Both consist of a 2499-384 linked with a 2499-192.  The two switches in each fabric have 8 ISL connections (e-ports).  Yet when the diagram/map of the fabrics are displayed, one shows 8 separate connections which seems accurate, the other shows only what looks like one connection from the diagram, but when selecting 'properties' of that connection (line) it displays 8 connections.  How can I change it so that they two fabrics look the same?  The way the diagram is now is misleading.  Thanks.

Re: Switch Group diagram/map misleading?

it seems that one of them has a 8-ISL trunk and the other fabric has 8 independent ISLs.

 

please paste a screenshot of the diagram, also the output of commands islshow and trunkshow would help.
