EVA 4000 - cache battery replacement with xcc code 5031

Is the following the proper controller cache battery replacement procedure for an EVA4000 with the 5031 firmware? (I know with firmware 6 and up you don't shutdown the controller.)

Shutdown the controller with the failed battery (or batteries)

Replace the failed battery brick(s)

Restart the controller

Thanks.
