I am planning a firmware upgrade on IBM equipement.   There is a SAN, Blade Center and a number of blades.   I believe there is a proper order to do these.  Is it Storage, Blade Center, then blades, or the reverse?

In fact, I've seen on rare situations where a firmware release requires full configuration backup and recovery because they are destructive.
