I have two switches in my fabric.
Both switches have the default VF configuration.
I now need to enable a port for EX to connect to another fabric.
Looking at documentation it seems I have two options:
1. Create a base switch and put the a port in there so I can configure it as an EX port
2. Disable vf and select any port(s) for EX
As I have active devices on this fabric are there any comments or pros and cons for the above.
I have a second fabric with two additional switches so my devices are split over the two fabrics.
I have the IR license installed on one switch.
The requirement for an EX port is temporary whilst we do some migration.

I'd rather use the first option since it is a fully online operative: you can create a new VF with the Base role non-disruptively; configure the FCR environment without any impact and once you've finished, you can undo everything and leave it as it is now.
