Changing HostGroup Type of Active LUNs

Question asked by Andrew Hall on Sep 7, 2014

Is it safe to change the HostGroup OS type from "Standard" to "Windows Extension" on an active Volume/LUN?  This is on a HUS-VM.  The Windows server is fully multi-pathed and the hostgroups could be changed one at a time.  And, is it safe for a Windows Server to access volumes if the LUN-Path/Hostgroup is still set for "Standard" mode?

 

Out of curiosity, what are the technical differences between the "Standard" and "Windows Extension" hostgroup types?  Thanks.
