    Side question:

     

    Are XISLs logical or real cables with different type of SFP?

     

    I am so confused about the domain ID (DID). I understand all default switches (DS) must have a unique DID in order to form a link with another. 

     

    However, how about the logical switches (LS)

    • Do they need to have a unique DID compared to its own DS?
    • Do they need to have a unique DID compared to other LS in another switch?

    Many thanks.

    neither the one nor the other.

     

    XISL is a Feature configurable in the FOS, and not related to cabling or SFP

     

    YES, each/all DS / LS Switches must have a unique DID

     

    If you want to configure Routing, must also be consider FID

     

    for more details refer the FOS Admin guide
