I have to assign uuid for virtual disk and restart the management agent.
Does the management agent restart reboot the VMs too?
Is it safe to restart the management agent?

It is completely safe to Restart Network Management Agents.

It does not affect your running VMs.

Restarting Network Management Agents, just restarts the agent service on the host ESXi server.

either login via ssh and type /sbin/service.sh restart

or from the Console Menu on the Host.
