fcdomain domain n static vsan x

befor merges :

unique domain id

different priority for principal switch selection

set distribution policy to full

consider zone mode to enhanced

no zone default-zone permit vsan x

disable trunk mode on ISL port and merge vsan1 first

and then other vsan by enabling trunk mode

configure port channel
