VMFS Datastore upgrade from version 5 to 6 if those datastores are set as boot from SAN Datastore

VMFS Datastore upgrade from version 5 to 6 if those datastores are set as boot from SAN Datastore:

i am planning to upgrade the vmfs of version of the datastore which have esxi boot partition on that datastore. i have a vcenter in which all the ESXi are set to boot from the SAN and ESXi boot partition are stored on the separate ESXi Datastore. We have updated version of the datastores except these. What will be the best practice to upgrade the VMFS?

>>> ... and ESXi boot partition are stored on the separate ESXi Datastore
Not sure whether I understand this correctly, but ESXi boot partitions are not formatted with a VMFS file system.

ESXi are installed on the UCS Blade and on the UCS Profile booting is set to Boot from the SAN. And it is directing to a Datastore in the vcenter which is VMFS formatted.
