How to translate fcr_xd_ name for imported switches into the actual switch name ??

Hello 

 

Fabric show on one of our edge fabrics show translate domains as below . 

 

How do we translate this info onto the actual switch name  ??

 

200: fffcc8 5c:4f:57:c7:14:c7:8f:01 0.0.0.0         0.0.0.0         "fcr_xd_200_31"

Tge fact is that "fcr_xd" doesn't represent the single remote switch, but the entire remote edge fabric (with FID=31 in this case)
In your topology this remote fabric could be formed by the single switch but could also contain multiple switches too.
You might get more information with the commands like fcrfabricshow/fcredgeshow etc... especially from within the backbone fabric.
