    Rebooting Switch Connected to VM Datastore

    vauxhard Lurker

      So here is the case, I have QNAP datastore and VM Server connected to a Switch.

       

      The topology looks like this :

       

      Storage ---------------> Switch <---------------VM Server

       

      The problem is, i have to reboot the switch because it hangs and i can't access it even with console, my question :

       

      1. How to do with my vm, am i just reboot the switch anyway or i have to turn the VM off first since all the VM using that storage ?

      2. If i reboot the switch without turn the VM off, will it cause any damage because i assume when the switch rebooted the VM can't access the storage ?

       

      Please let me know, thanks in advance.
