Virtual Connect modules relocated on the SAN

I have a new pair of DCX switches. I have ISL'd the prod 24000 switches into the new DCX fabric pair (A&B). Will move hosts over soon but there are also Blade enclosures with HP Virtual Connect modules. I will need to move these to the new DCX from the 24k, can I simply move cables from 24K to DCX without a zone change? Essentially the VC mods are managing the WWN's for the blades. I configured the zone info way back when I installed the new VC mods based on what I was given from VCEM. Can’t imagine this changing just because I relocated them (VC Mods) from one switch to another but I need to ask the community what you think or if you experienced this before. Soft zoning only is used in this environment.

If you zoned those blades using the ww(p)n you can move the VC's to a new port.
