This is a basic diagram of our currently operational fabric: ( "|" represents FC optical links)

We would like to interconnect MDS9124 with another MDS9124 switch to provide redundancy in case one of the switches stops working. We have created one additional VSAN and use that VSAN for the fabric. Physically, we would connect servers and storage to the other MDS switch with optic cables as well, since we have dual port HBA's. How do we go about configuring the other switch since this model doesn't support High Availability? We will create ISL trunk, convert ISL ports to E ports and specify our VSAN that will be shared. Any additional configuration for this solution? The goal is to connect servers to storage in a way that supports failure of one SAN switch. Thank you for your answers!
