I've looked through the docs and can't seem to find a procedure for restart. I can't just reboot the host. There are several services listed in Windows Services app and I'm assuming there is a correct order to stop/start these services or maybe a Hitachi tool for stop/start.

The HCS Administration Guide has a section for Starting and Stopping services. You can stop and start the services via the "Stop - HCS" and "Start - HCS" shortcuts that are automatically created on the start menu during the installation, or via the following commands:

[HCS Installation Directory]\Base64\bin\hcmds64srv /stop[HCS Installation Directory]\Base64\bin\hcmds64srv /start

There isn't a single "restart" command; though you could easily throw the commands above into a batch file.
