Can I shut the vCentre server in esxi5.1 environment? Is there any issue if I shut the vcentre server for half an hour for maintenance? My cluster is configured with HA and DRS manual.

Wont hurt anything, just wont be able to access the management.  You would have to simply fire vCenter backup in order to gain access to it again.  If this is a VM on a host you would use vsphere and connect directly to the host VCenter is running on in order to power it back up.

Yes, quite safe, however vMotion, DRS and any vCenter Administration, (e.g. users connected to vCenter Server), will be unavailable.

But as VMs are hosted on ESXi servers, your VMs will not be affected.
