First of all graceful restart will not work on Windows for any busy
server. I suggest that you move to some unix/linux version.

And yes, the session affinity will be preserved because it is
related to the worker name and jvmRoute.

Also, like somebody already told you: The easiest is to try by yourself,
and then come up with the real problem.
