I am experimenting with Xenserver 5.0, I am wondering if it is possible to manually move a Virtual machine from a Local Storage to a different server Host Local Storage or SAN storage?

I have a Test enviroment that has local disks, Installed Xenserver 5.0 and created a Guest Virtual Machine Windows 2003. Can I shut down this VM and copy it to a Different Xenserver Host which is using a SAN or local disk?

Thanks

With Hyper-V you can move the VHD file over to another disk then re-add the VM. In VMWARE I believe you can do the same. So, I think XEN can as well.
