we are planning our production fabric code upgrade soon from 6.1.0h to 6.2.2b on even and odd side.
two options: option 1:upgrade the code both sides of fabric all at once.
option 2: upgrade code on one side first and look at the fabric behavior for a day or two and upgrade the next later.
Which option do you recommend/suggest and safer to do ? much appreciate your valid answers on this.

Thanks for the reply and want to make sure on your answer,
running half of the fabric paths with 6.1.0h and half of the fabric paths with 6.2.2b for a day to two will not cause any issues ? Just making sure one more time..

Our best practice for sensitive environments is to upgrade one fabric on one weekend, leave it for one week to confirm the new FOS is stable with all workloads and then upgrade redundant fabric on next weekend.
