Extended Fabric Install/Setup

Couple questions..

1. Installing Extended Fabric License will require "switchdisable" and "configure" to set the "fabric.ops.mode.longDistance" to "1".

When doing this will we lose the "effective configuration" where as we would lose all zoning info? Or will that be maintained? Just want to know whether we will need to configdownload zoning after the switch configuration.

2. If we install a temporary "extended fabric license" key on v6.1.0 and then go to apply a permenent key at a later date, will that require a "switchdisable"?

3. Do we need to make any changes to the actual port. Like the port needs to be ISL_READY mode? How do I check or set that if needed?
