Any one can help me on this. i am very new for the fabric admin.
I have two fabric setup in our environment. Fabric-A and Fabric-B, in Fabric-A and B each fabric connected as 9 switches total switches 18.the core switch is a 4900 edge switches brocade 300B.
my question is upgrading firmware to switches need to upgrade individual switches or if i update the core switch it will get update on edge switches.

the switch perform fastboot when the first firmwaredownload step in the first Partion is ended, then the switch perform a commit.
I suggest to upgrade one fabric at a time, and before you begin to consult Brocade and Storage Matrix.
additional I suggest to create a config backup from all switch both Fabric, and begin depend the FOS release you have currently in the Brocade 300B with the Old CORE Switch 4900.
