I need to do dome firmare upgrades from v7.2.x to v8.0.x on a couple of SN3000B switches. Reading through the release notes I can either do this distruptively but in fewer steps or non-disruptively in more steps. To minimise risk I would rather do more steps that are non-disruptive but I want to know if this is truely non-disutptive using this approach. The environment is very simple with 2 x FC switches, a small number of hosts and single storage array. Whereas some hosts are multipathed there are a couple of hosts with only a single HBA port and therefore connected to just one switch. My interpretation of 'non-disrutpive' is that a single pathed host will not suffer any outage when the switch is upgraded - is this what 'non-disruptive' means in the HPE\Brocade world or do I need to shutdown any single pathed hosts first?
Thanks in advance

Great - many thanks for the info
I think I need to apply the following to get from 7.2.1d to the latest version non-disruptively:
7.2.1d --> 7.3.2b --> 7.4.1e --> v8.0.2a --> v8.1.0a
does that look correct to you?

yes that is correct.
