HP Virtual Connect firmware upgrade ?


I'm  in the process of upgrading my ESXi hosts to vSphere 6,  so I'm stuck in this confusion of what is the best way to perform the existing Virtual Connect firmware update to the latest version v4.45 described in this document http://vibsdepot.hp.com/hpq/recipes/HPE-VMware-Recipe.pdf on page 7

Here's my current environment:

HP VC Flex-10 Enet Module on Bay 1 & 2
Part Number: 455880-B21
Spare Part Number: 456095-001
Firmware Version: 4.01

HP B-series 8/24c SAN Switch BladeSystem c-Class on Bay 5 & 6
Part Number: AJ821A
Spare Part Number: 489865-001
Firmware Version: N/A

However there is big risk of outage and configuration lost involved as stated in this http://h20565.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?sp4ts.oid=3794423&docId=emr_na-c04422904

So I need your help of what are the safest steps to be taken without causing outage issue in my current VMware environment ?
