ISL Trunking

Statically set the trunking encapsulation of SW1’s inter-switch links to ISL.

SW1(config)#int ra fa 0/13 - 21
SW1(config-if-range)#switchport trunk encapsulation isl 

 

Verify that SW2, SW3, & SW4 are negotiating ISL as the trunking encapsulation to SW1, and that SW1 is not negotiating ISL to SW2, SW3,and SW4.
