I need to migrate my exchange server 2007 running on VMware ESX 3.5, from and older SAN to a new SAN.

So far I have migrated over 25 smaller vms with 8-15G of space. However, my exchange server has close to 200G of space. I know it will take about 4 hours to complete.

The question is: Is there anything i should be looking at before doing this? Best Practices or anything else would be helpful.
Thanks,

I don't think I have RDM. I have vmotion but not storage vmotion.  I need to shut down the vm then do the migration (same host but different LUN).

As mentioned so far not a single glitch with the other ones (linux and windows)
