Hi there, it is not supported to use the same cluster switches for two clusters. To be safe, you should do the migrations one cluster at a time.

 

If you have no other choice, configuring the switches to split each cluster up into seperate VLANs so that they do not see each other's traffic, and trunking the VLANs over the ISLs between them may provide functionality, but it would not be supported.
