    Hi there,

     

    this is current situation in my environment which I found out. Of course I would like to corrected as 2 trunks, each trunk has 2 ISLs.

    But just curious, if I don't correct now, what is the impacts? how brocade route the traffic between those 2 trunks? each ISL is 8Gb.

    would dcx split thr traffic 3:1 between those 2 trunks? or 1:1?

     

    Could some gurus advise me? thanks in advance!

    look in the Admin Guide for DLS = Dynamic Load Sharing

     

    what you exactely mean with:

     

    -->>....trunk2 with 1 ISL

     

    is a bit confused, Trunking with 1 ISL cannot be created.

     

    can you please explain a bit more ?
