What steps we need to new A300L nodes to the existing node pool of A200?

I will install and add new 16 x A300L nodes to the existing A200 node pool in the cluster with OneFS 9.2.1.9 in the customer site.

I don't know whether we need to reboot the first pair nodes of A300L after adding them to the existing node pool of A200.

Because which the following two sites my case does correspond to. 

<without reboot>

<with reboot>

https://www.dell.com/support/kbdoc/en-jp/000182149?lang=en

 

Are the following steps for my case correct ?

1. Add two A300L nodes to the A200 cluster.

2. Two A300L nodes are added in pairs so first pair nodes will join the cluster and create New NodePool.

3. Get the ID of the New NodePool of A300L (identified by "unprovisioned_pool_" string) by running # isi storagepool nodepools list.

4. Enable nodes of new NodePool of A300L to join the existing NodePool of A200 by running #isi storagepool nodepools modify <compatible_nodepool_name> --add-node-type-ids=<new_nodetype_id>.

5. No need to reboot the first pair nodes of A300L because it is a different case of A200 with 16GB/64GB.

6. Verify that new nodes of A300L are added to the existing NodePool of A200 by running # isi storagepool nodepools list

7. Add the remaining new nodes of A300L in pair to the existing NodePool of A200. We no longer need to run #isi storagepool nodepools modify... command.

Thank you.
