Replicated LUN and HLU

We are having mounting issue with replicated lun. We are replicating lun localy using EMC's recoverpoint for backup.
Backup mounts this replicated lun at ESXi hosts during the backup.
The host lun id for this lun is being assigned by backup randomly.  In this case, this lun  will have multiple HLU since it is in two storage group. Because of this ESXI drops the lun since it has multiple HLUs.
Many of you must be replicating locally using mirrowview,snapsure clone etc. We can assign the same lun id manually but the lun will be locked by recoverpoint after the backup.
Will there be any issue assigning a locked LUN into the ESXI's storage group ? We are not mounting it. But, the LUN will be visible to ESXI host.

Is the replicated LUN used only for backup? Or does it actively used for writing data?

If it is used only for backup, there should not be an issue assigning the locked LUN to the storage group

It is is only used for the backup. It is not being used for writing data. Will we have any problem with the ESXi reboot? Will the ESXi stuck at iscsi service etc?
SHBSystems ArchitectCommented:
Stop the backup before ESXi reboot. The reboot should be fine. I have had tried this before.
