Add ISL port to existing


I have 2 switches connected through one ISL link. Due to hight port utilization I want to add new ISL link do existing one. No trunk license.

Shoul I just configure another port as E-port, make it disable and connect to another port on second switch?

Then portenable and finish?

From that moment the traffic will be balanced through 2 links?

yes, if you have exchange based policy enabled switch will distribute traffic on all ISLs. So becuase of that keep all ISLs on same speed.
