fabricPrincipal - quesitons

We currently have 2800's as our fabric principals. we would like to moved these to our 12000 switches (A & B fabrics). The fabricprincipal command is not clear on was affect this will have on the SAN.

I have run it in my production fabrics without a problem. It was non-disruptive when I did it.

basically what is does is give the switch that is designated 'fabricprincipal' priority over the other switches when a FB occurs. If two or more switches are designated, low WWN wins out
