--->>>Do we need switchdisable on FCR configuration?
No, is not necessary.
But you should disable the appropriate port when you made any change or config.

Thanks for Quick reply,,
As per document we need to follow these steps, please confirm..
fosconfig --disable fcr
fcrconfigure set the backbone id
fosconfig --enable fcr
If you have complete steps of FCR and VEX port configuration ,please send it me

You ask for VEX config and not how to change or configure backbone id.
in such case is correct, in orde to change backbone id the switch must be set to disable.
--->>> If you have complete steps of FCR and VEX port configuration ,please send it me
here is not a standard Procedure aavailabe because the One environments is different from another one.
FCIP and FOS Admin Guide are two excellent manuals.
you should first planned what you want to realized before begin with any config.

Old infra using merge fabric FCIP configuration with two 7800 now customer going to un merge the fabric.
And enabling the FCR feature ,so in that case we need to configure site VEX port and site 2 EX port.

I assume are switches on both sites?
I would create VE-VE and connect the Switches via EX Port on both 7800.
In such case you can leave the both 7800 Backbone ID as per default 128.
Both switches, Site_1 become i.e. FID 120 and the other Site_B FID 110.
Switches Domain ID can be the same or different i.e. 100.
7800 DID would become, 101 und 102 because this form a Fabric.

If site 7800 and site 2 7800 is in same fabric than VE-VE is worked but both 7800 is in different fabric than we need to configure VEX on one site for this need integrated routing license and need to create LSAN zones.
