sk95746 provides some guidelines around release adoption / terminology.

Preparation is important, will you have Console or LOM access to the Gateways during the upgrade, are they clusters?

For any Mgmt upgrade I like to ensure that I have multiple different recovery points available and stored off box...

- migrate export

- GAIA snapshot

- GAIA backup 

- Vmware Snapshot
