I have a question on this array configuration and reboot.
I noticed this in a client place that all the cable on first CM is connected to switches and only one cable fro the second CM is connected to switch.
1 Is this configuration is correct?
2. What will happen if i reboot one array in the pool? will the servers disconnect from LUN?

It's okay, but not ideal. Some of the Equallogic controllers actually let all of the cables be attached to one controller and either controller can use those connections. It is generally better to have all of the ports on both controllers cabled. You can run the array with just a single Ethernet port connected to a controller.

Whether or not your servers can gracefully handle a controller reboot depends on whether or not the various timeouts are configured properly on your servers, and to some extent what the load and firmware revision is on the array member.
