iSCSI storage server reboot question

I'm testing an iSCSI SAN at my home lab. I've mapped three iSCSI targets from my host server to the storage server.

Now that the targets are active and I'm showing three disks in computer management, how do I reboot the storage server without screwing things up?

Right now the disks are empty, but what if I host a VHD from a VM on one of the iSCSI disks? I would assume that shutting down the VM would be in order, but is it okay to just reboot the storage server like I would any other server?

Usually shutdown the VMs and hosts and make sure all traffic and disk i/o to the SAN has stopped. Then just restart it as normal. Once the host and VMs come back online they will reconnect to the targets.
