Does reloading occur when firmware is applied to the FAS2650A?

Hello,

 

I am about to apply firmware to my FAS2650A. Is reloading mandatory?

The reason I am asking this is,
My environment uses NetApp as external storage for VMware, and due to a rule with the client, I can't stop the parcel (it would require an adjustment to stop it)
So, if I reload, the parcel will be down and it will be a critical issue.

 

Thankyou

It depends on the firmware you want to update: disruptive or non-disruptive. 

 

Disruptive ones like BIOS or PCI/chipset ones, require a node reboot

Non-disruptive ones like SP/BMC, disks or shelves, don't.
