If you are migrating switches on remote sites make sure you start with a switch you can get physical access to just in case you manage to lock yourself out.

Once you have a working config then you should be fine remotely updating the switches. However when you are first testing this it is possible to lock yourself out of the switch/router so if you can test your config on a spare switch. if you don't have a spare switch test your config on a switch/router that is not critical in your environment.
