Is there a way of removing old no longer used host entries? one solution was to reset the clariion management server. How do i do that and won't that disconnect connected hosts during the reset?

If you are using a fabric switch (FC switch) with static entries you will need to remove the server entries from the zones in there as well. You can go into Maint mode and remove the host and if you have two controllers on your cabinet then rebooting them one at a time should do the trick and keep your storage available. The "management server" if you are referring to the Windows machine that has navi installed can go down without affecting the storage outside of any DFS or network shares from that specific server but storage stays up and available for all other servers attached to the SAN.
