Thanks for the reply,
I'm unable to find the code upgrade process and prerequsites specifically for the mentioned switches, it would really great if you can provide some URL or PDF for the same.

As a general rule, you have to go 5.3x, 6.0.x, 6.1.x, 6.2.x, to 6.3.0x etc. I'd recommend reviewing the release notes for all versions prior to doing the upgrade. In addition you'll also want to back up any and all switch configs prior to performing the updates.

From 6.0.x you can go 1 step up.
Also do the FOS upgrade one Fabric at a time. First Fab-2 and see whether you face any Server HBA Firmware compatibilty issue or any other issue. then you do fabric-1.Some times you may have to face Server HBA Firmware issue or multipathing SW issue.Chekc the Brocade compatibilty matrix.
