    Have 3 switches; (1) 6510B and (2) 5100B. The two 5100B's are connected together by a single ISL. I want to Trunk ISL between all 3 and I'm not sure how. Are there any step-by-step instructions or is it as easy as shut down the switches and run redundant fiber cables between each switch using a certain ports?

    in order to create a Tunking, you need a Trunking License. When a License is present, Trunking is active by default,

     

    each switch build Trunk, must have Active Trunking License.

     

    another option like Trunking ( but offer only redundant path ) at no-cost, ist DPS = Dynamic Path Selection / EBR= Exchange Basic Routing.
