How do i merge zones after restoring broken ISL ?

We had TWO brocade DS5300_B switches on two sites in single fabric connected through ISL. It was working fine and have a lot of zones/aliases. Two months ago, the ISL was broken and it took some time to restore the broken ISL. Meanwhile (during last two months) some new zones were created individually on both sites. Now ISL connection has been restored (To avoid zone conflicts, we already disconnected ISL cable now). Now how can we connect ISL and do zone merge ?

I can only think of manually creating the zones on either sides and making the config look ditto/same. Then enable the ISL ports and the switches will merge.

Thanks bijukrishnan, It worked. I manually created the zones on both switches, then restored ISL. Now it shows single fabric with all required zones. thanks.
