Firmware upgrade on P420i from an older 3.54 to 8 - stepping method, do you agree?

Hi everyone,

I have to do a firmware upgrade on P420i from an older 3.54 to the latest 8 - opened an HPE case and they suggested a stepping method, do you agree?

They suggested 2 steps; start with an upgrade to 6 and then to 8; easy only 2 steps and 2 times reboot.

Does this suggestion sound like a valid one? Obviously I expected some incremental safety upgrades instead of jumping directly from 3.54 to 8 so I wonder if even going from 3 to 6 is sufficiently "safe" so to speak?

Thank you
