Experience with fimrware update 4.1 to 4.4 on 12000

Does anyone have experiences, good or bad, with the "non-disruptive" code update on a SW12000.

For 12000s our experience is that 'non-disruptive' is what upgrades are. No problems apart from one when we had a hardware problem (still didn't cause a disruption of service).Perhaps a good opportunity to trial the new Fabric Manager 5.0 to carry out the firmware upgrades? (Firmware repository is an excellent feature - even if it should have been there before!)

I did it without problem, but just because Murphy's law, I would suggest to you to make a configupload of your switches before upgrading them.
