SAN with mixed firmware versions


I have a SAN with what are described as Brocade 45 switches running FW ver=6.2.2e and various HP StorageWorks switches all at FW ver=6.4.1a. All works just fine today. Need to update the HP switches to 7.1.1 to take advantage of new features. The Brocade 45 switches are at the latest version so I cannot go past 6.2.2e on these. Does anyone know of any potential issues with mixing and matching between 7.1.1 and 6.2.2e?
