adding an FC Switch and then removing switch with host online


I currently have a SAN infrastructure that consists of two FABRICs A & B. Both Fabrics have one 4800 Brocade (IBM Designation 2401 M4800) at each of their respective locations separated by 12 miles connected with FINISAR LASER multiplex units.

What I need to do is non-disruptively, replace the old switches (M4800) with the new 5910 switches, I have seen a few posts about this but am looking for the bullet-proof step-by-step document to accomplish this task….is there one out there. If there isn’t one, I am open to suggestions of how to do such an activity.
