Hi Jafiz
1 yes
2 yes
3 listed below
4 reboot command to oa
5 as listed below psu reports

on c class this order sysboard ilo then oa and then interconnects
then from cli send reboot command to oa via ip, or just pullout the oa then reinsert after 40 seconds or so , then it will do a rediscovery and arrange its priorities so it can manage the enclosure with the new firmwares


use compatibility matrix

when all is updated you may get reports power supplies have failed it is usually false alarm

see this link too below

but updates are pretty straight forward and do not result in issues

enjoy:)
