I'm fairly new to SAN switch configuration so hopefully I don't come off as an idiot.
Our current environment consists of two 9513s that are totally independent of each other. Each has multiple connections to a CX3-80. We are adding a CX4 in a different building (fiber between buildings) and have purchased two 9134s to put in the new building with the new CX4. I guess my question is what is the best configuration of topology to make that:
-allows storage arrays connected to the 9513s to be able to communicate with storage arrays connected to the 9134s.
-provides the easiest management
Lastly i'm a little confused about exactly what happens when you create an ISL link between two switches. for example if i connected one of the new 9134s to an existing 9513 would it immediately create one fabric?
