Upgrading firmware on a P-Class enclosure

If I upgrade the firmware on the management modules and power modules in a P-Class rack. Will this have any effect on the blades running in the rack at the time. Or will I have to make sure all blades are off before upgrading?

Hi Koopa,

afaik there is no downtime needed.
The management module is also hot-plugable, so the blades can run even if you take it out from the enclosure, so FW update also.

So simply flashing the update should have no impact on the blades.

Once again, thank you Blazhev, I thought you would be able to do so. But it's nice to have someone confirm it as well
