Systemverification on 7500

I am executing the command Systemverification on a Brocade MPR7500 for the first time.

Please advice me if what precautions needs to be taken.

  1. Understand I need to run this command offline, Should I switch disable or chassisDisable ?
  2. Do I need to reboot the  device once the diagnostics is executed ?

Run the switchdisable command first. This will bring the switch OFFLINE and will be disruptive to IO.

Do I need to reboot the  device once the diagnostics is executed ?
Not required in my opinion, if the systemverification and diagpost show all h/w ok then you can continue to enable the switch. If not and you see error messages related to the hardware, then replace the 7500.

Kindly mark the question answered if you think this helps.
