Any "gotcha's" for upgrading Brocade Chassis switch model 5470 from v6.3.1b to v6.4.2a?

Our networking team purchased two Brocade Blade Chassis switches (Model 5470, switchType: 73.6) from a vendor without and support/maintenance agreement.  The current FOS is v6.3.1b.

We have additional switches we would like to upgrade to v6.4.2a, and since the blade switches are in the same SAN fabric, we would like to upgrade them also.  Is the forum aware of any "gotcha's" that I should be aware of, since I am the one who has to do the upgrade?  EMC will be doing the upgrade on our other switches in our fabrics (DS4900 and DS5100).

Any input/suggestions are welcome.

Thanks.

No not really, its just a bladed version of a pizzabox switch.

You can use webtools, CLI or BNA to upgrade your FOS lvl.

As it just one lvl upgrade nothing fancy to do there either.
