ISL between brocade DCX-4S with B5100

[ Edited ]

Can I do the below procedure:

- Trunking 8 ports of DCX-4S - trunkgroup0

- Trunking 8 ports of B5100 - trunkgroup1

- Configure ISL between two trunkgroup0 and trungroup1?



System info:

    Fabric Watch (Fabric Vision capable) license

    Performance Monitor (Fabric Vision capable) license

    Trunking license

    Adaptive Networking - obsolete license

    Enhanced Group Management license

    Server Application Optimization - obsolete license


- B5100 licenses:

    Fabric license

    Full Ports on Demand license - additional 16 port upgrade license

you can ISL from any N 5100 Portgroup to any N DCX Portgroup without restriction, however you cannot create Trunk, because from the output you post here the 5100 don't have Trunking License
