Decomissioning CX3 from McData DS-4400M

I need to decomission a EMC CX3 this coming weekend and the only part I am not familar with is the process for disconnecting the FC ports on our 2 x McData 4400.

The 4400 will stay in production for a CX4 and 5 x ESX hosts but I need to disconnect the CX3 from it.

There is a single Zone set so my assumption is that I would delete each of the CX3 connections shown below and then Update the ZoneSet. But wasnt sure if there was anything else that needed to be done on the switch like at the port level. My assumption is that I would just physicall unplug and then clear out the Name\Description.

Any direction would be much appreciated!!
