Migration to New SAN Fibre switches - Best Practice


I'm in the process of moving from my old fibre fabric (2 x Compaq Storageworks 2/16EL) to 2 x New Storageworks 32/4B switches.
I've already created identical Zones and Aliases on the new switches.

Since all my servers are multipathed, I was thinking that I can simply pull the first of the old switches out and repatch to the new switch. Test the new switch and then repeat for the second switch.
I plan to shut down all heavy I/O servers beforehand (Exchange and SQL) to minimise and path disruption problems.

does this sound feasible to you folks?
