DS-300B zoning

We have 2 DS-300B switches that we have a need for shared storage between 2 servers. Each server is connected via fiber to a different DS-300B switch. Can each switch see the other switch for this to be accomplished? Currently they are both zoned on different switches. I am rather new to Brocade switches and need some direction on this.

--->>>Can each switch see the other switch....

One Switch can see the other Switch only when you ISL both also Build a Fabric.

If both Switch are not connected via ISL, you have a DUAL fabric.

Keep in mind, dual Fabric from Fail over side is more secure as a single Fabric.
