Later this month I plan on upgarding the firmware 2 on my IBM 16B-2 switches (Brocade 200E) and I am trying to figure out what to expect. I have identified my update path and understand that I will need to place the updates on an FTP server in order to install them. My biggest question is do I have to reboot the switch after each firmware update? The switches are currently at Fabric OS 5.1.0b and I will be updating to level 6.2.2e as follows:
5.1.0b -> 5.3.2c -> 6.0.0c -> 6.1.1a -> 6.2.
