BLc-Class PCI Expansion Blade Firmware Downgrade

I beleive I know the answer to this but I have been tasked with finding out for sure so appologies upfront for this.

 

We have three expansion blades.  One is at 2.20 and the other two are at 1.20.  We are looking to upgrade the two that are at 1.20 and are making a contigency plan if something goes wrong.

 

Is it possible to downgrade the firmware on an expansion blade?

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

When I checked with our technical guys, they don't see a problem with being able to down rev. the firmware if you run into troubles.

Thanks for the reply.  Since I can't download the firmware for expansion blades will I need to downgrade the OA firmware to a previous version in order to do this or is there a way to backup the firmware and then reapply it if we need to?

 

Thanks.
