    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.
