How to swap the powersupply source for Cisco and Brocade switches on a SAN environment-VMware

Hi

We have VMware infrastructure
3 ESX server  
1 San and
2 Brocade switches
2 Cisco core switch (LACP is configured)

Here Brocade Switch-A and Cisco Switch-A (doesn’t have a redundant power supply) and both the switches are connected to UPS- A
The UPS-A battery has become faulty not behaving well. Now planning replace the UPS-A with a new UPS.

If I pull out the power cord of Brocade Switch-A and Cisco Switch-A and connect to the new UPS
Will it be ok and will there be any downtime?

Or is there a better way of swapping the power supply for this unit.
Please advise and thanks

Hi Andrew

It is not FC SAN and it must be iSCSI
