IFL between two DCX-4s.

I need help in setting up IFL between DCX-4s, each connecting using DWDM. Right now site-A is active(production), this week we will be bring site-B up. To configure IFL between dcx-4s what configuration changes should i make(if possible please provide step by step process. I don't want to screw this up, site-A is in production).  I was looking into brocade documents i couldn't find IFL between two DCX-4s.

  Site-A                                                                                          Site-B

DCX-4s Fab-A(E)------ONS ------DWDM------ONS------(EX)DCX-4s Fab-A


DCX-4s Fab-B(E)------ONS ------DWDM------ONS------(EX)DCX-4s Fab-B

Appreciate your help.
