Hi We are thinking to upgrade our SAN, wich is composed by 4sw ,  BR 4100  with fos v6.2.

We are ging to fos v6.3.x .

I'm newbie about it, please could you indicate me a step by step guide?

Is it disruptive?

Thank you for your help!

Nothing too fancy about upgrading.  It is non-disruptive.  You will simply need to obtain the firmware you need from your appropriate vendor.  If you are already at 6.2, you don't need to make an interim step to get to 6.3.  Simply extract the firmware to your FTP server and then run 'firmwaredownload' from the 4100 CLI. 

It will then ask you for the path, user/pass, of your FTP server and away it goes. 

There is a pretty good explanation in the FOS Admin Guide.

I have a step-by-step I can provide from my company, but you'll have to send me your email.
