    Can i run hareboot on brocade 5300 switches ? When i run hashow it shows error "hashow: Not supported on this platform".

    If we can run hareboot then please explain how it works for non-director class switches even though no HA in place.

    It will reboot the Linux (Fabric OS) on the CP of the switch, while the ASIC(s) will continue switching the FC packets.
