	ISM -> Settings -> Import/Export -> Export Configuration Data  & Export Running Data.

2. Stop I/O load or stop NAS Services via ISM
	ISM -> CIFS -> CIFS Service ->Disable
	ISM -> CIFS -> NFS Service ->Disable
	ISM -> FTP -> FTP Service ->Disable
	ISM -> HTTP-> HTTP Service ->Disable
	ISM -> Replication -> Job ->Disable

   Or stop services via master login (CLISH):

	N8300>NFS server stop
	N8300>FTP server stop
	N8300>HTTP server stop
	N8300>Replication service stop

	283f5857f868743951064e7d82ecd813  ST9SPCF201.03.05.126.T03.tgz
	e0e17b58463166ab94a548e106e41bb8  fc_ses.bin
	102fe38a9ecfb9150bfbd7877012ecf0  n8k_patch110901.tar.gz
	c60232bbc053dc2806794de3fb1a2bbe  FileStore ISM.exe

4. Plan service down time for about 1 hours:
	Filestore patch takes about 45 minutes to install for two-node cluster. 
	ISM patch takes about 15 minutes to install. 
	Array patch takes about 30 minutes to install. 
	Array can be upgraded in parallel with Filestore patch using stand-alone ISM (FileStore ISM.exe).

Install Filestore Patch 

1. Copy SFSFS-patch-5.6RP1P1_rc8_2011_08_06.tar.gz to filestore master node via support login.
2. Install Filestore Patch via  master login (CLISH):

	N8300>upgrade patch install scp://support@localhost:/home/support/patches/SFSFS-patch-5.6RP1P1_rc8_2011_08_06.tar.gz

	Patch will be installed on slave nodes first followed by reboot. Master node will be installed last and will reboot, hence the above command will break. 

3. Monitor and check cluster status: 
	To check installation is done, login to master node again (should switch to another node) and check all nodes are at running state:
	N8300>cluster show
	----            -----      -----------   -------- --------   -------- --------
	N8300_01       RUNNING          0.98       0.01     0.00       0.01     0.00 
	N8300_02       RUNNING          0.97       0.01     0.00       0.01     0.00 

	N8300_01# gabconfig -a
