Does it impact to configuration of a fabric by changing switch domain id ?

Actually we have 2 swirches in a fabric and we need to change domain id of one of the switch. If we change domain id will it impact to the current configuration of fabric ? As fcid's have the domain id's aswell. We are bit confused here to change domain id.

If you don't have any port based zoning or TI zones, then no, no configuration impact at all. Both of these zoning techniques are currently really odd to see.

There should be a couple of additional features for example the DCC security policy, where changing the DomainID would need some reconfiguration.

Be aware that you have to disable switch before you will change domain ID. So its disruptive.
