Hi, this is probably a stupid question but I need to reboot the server that is running EMC Power Path and the Replication Manager software. If I reboot it will it affect the SAN in anyway?

The replication jobs in Replication Mgr run over night and the server would be rebooted during the day.

Thanks for any advice.

There is a guide for this here

Besides, if you reboot a machine, and program and any device , service, machine that depends on the services of this machine will be affected momentarily until th systems comes up.

Hi coolcurrent4u, thanks for the reply.

Sorry I should've said that the OS is Windows 2003 - the guide is for LInux. I've looked through it and when upgrading the OS or software etc it doesn't mention that the SAN itself will be affected, so I'm guessing the answer is No the SAN will function without issue?

Thanks again

Your disk array  (SAN) will work fine if you reboot a server.

If this is your Replication Manager Server - Everything will still be fine.  The RM server is basically just a job scheduler and script-runner.
