FOS fw upgrade to 6.4.2b

Hello all,  as is the first time that i'm going to do a fw upgrade on my switches, if possibile i'd like to have some clarification.

the environment is

FAbric A

2 2499-384 dcx

3 5470

FAbric B

2 2499-384 dcx

3 5470

all are on the level 6.4.1.b and the target fw is 6.4.2.b

The process I'd like to do  is:

1) run supportsave

2) run configupload

3) run errclear

4) firmwaredownload

5) firmwareshow

6) firmwaredownloadstatus

7) version

8) nsshow

9) fabricshow

10) firmwareshow

11) configupload

There's something that I have to know?

the CP's on the DCX's are:

Local CP (Slot 6, CP0): Active, Warm Recovered

Remote CP (Slot 7, CP1): Standby, Healthy

HA enabled, Heartbeat Up, HA State synchronized

Anyway I'll risk some loss of paths?

and for the blade's 5470, which behavior can I have?

--->>>....anyway is better to start with the blade or with the DCX?

there is only one "firmwaredownload" procedure.

what you mean start with Blade or DCX ? Embedded Blade Switch ?

If yes, i would begin first with Blade Switch.
