After you upgrade the NSX components for the virtual infrastructure layer, disable the graceful restart on the BGP configuration for the shared edge and compute cluster NSX Edges in the Region A. You avoid potential traffic loss because the physical network and logical routers will clear the forwarding table during an ESG failure.
