Dell PowerConnect M8428-K ISL with Brocade Switches?

Hi all

I got 2 Fabrics with 2 switches each Brocade 5000 and 4100 that connect to each via ISL. We recently bought Dell Blade Chassi with Dell PowerConnect M8428-K (Brocade OEM) switch in it. I need to connect this now via ISL and to my current frabics. Current switches is on FOS 6.2.2 and new switch is on FOS 6.3.1_del. I assume I need to update my current switches 1st to 6.3.1. ? Any other gothca I have to look out for?

Keeping the M8428-K as NPIV mode switch or change it to full fabric?
