Least disruptive way to turn off admin domains and switch to virtual fabrics?


We are currently using admin domains on our Brocade v6.1x switches (DCX, 5100, 5300).  We'd like to upgrade to v6.3 and switch to using virtual fabrics. As I understand it, this will require that we remove our admin domains.  Has anyone come up with a "least disruptive" way to remove admin domains from a fabric?

We do run 2 fabrics, so technically, even if we have to take one fabric down *we should* be okay. But we are looking for ways to avoid or significantly reduce that risk.

Thanks in advance,
