data center move, brocade switches shutdown

We need to move a data center. We have 2 core switches (48k, Fabric OS:  v5.2.0a), and a few 5000 edge switches (Fabric OS:  v5.2.1).

What's the right sequence for shutting down the switches?

I think we need to shutdown everything else (servers, SAN storage disk arrays, NAS filers), before shutting down these switches, is this correct?

I think I could use 'sysshutdown' command to shutdown these switches, is it correct? Never had a chance to restart these switches so far, and we don't have a test switch here ..

Thanks,
