    Hi,

     

    A FC DS switch will do an automatic HA reboot as part of any upgrade. Which should have no impact on the devices or fc traffic.

     

    For FC Directors, under normal circumstances, the CP's will failover during the upgrade as well, and should have no impact on FC traffic eihter.

     

    Regards,

    That is -> when you are doing a "non disruptive upgrade" according to the "target path" document.
