My topology is
Storage EVA -> san switch hp b-series 3800 (firmware 3.2.1c) -> Core Switch (Silkworm 48000) firmware 4.4.0f and Server
I want to upgrade firmware hp b-series to version 3.21. After I upgrade this firmware. Does it have any impact to Core switch?
Please help to give me the doc about support compatible between these san switches.
Note: there are two hp b-series san switches in two fabric for redundant. Should i upgrade both switches? If I try to upgrade only one, Have any impact?
please help to suggest me

Sorry. I told you wrong core switch model. The correct model is silkworm 12000 (firmware version 4.4.0f)
Can you help to suggest me?

12000 is another story.
Yes, FabOS 3.2.x and 4.4.x are Supported, and work in the same Fabric.
--->>> After I upgrade this firmware. Does it have any impact to Core switch?
No by the FabOS.
--->>> I want to upgrade firmware hp b-series to version 3.21.
Check before you upgrade if the EVA Firmware are Supported, certified and Approved with v3.2.x
Upgrade first one Fabric and test it, otherwise you can downgrade the 3800 toactuall FabOS release.
But i think 99% all will work fine with v3.2.1c

I have one question.
There is other b-series san switch in another fabric for redundant path(there are two fabric for redundant path).Should I upgrade this other b-series san switch same new firmware version?
In my assumptioin, If I upgrade only one b-series san switch, what is the impact to other redundancy b-series san switch which I don't want upgrade firmware.
Please, help to suggest me
Many thanks for your help

--->>> There is other b-series san switch in another fabric for redundant path....
--->>> ...... I upgrade this other b-series san switch same new firmware version?
Yes, in a second step.
--->>> ... If I upgrade only one b-series san switch, what is the impact to other redundancy...
nanosec, i cannot give you any warranty, but in a normal circumstance, the asnwer is no, the redundant Fabric don.t have impact.
Before begin upgrade, save first all switch config, in a case you downgrade now to actually Rel. can upload to each switch the latest work config.
