migrating fibre channel luns to a vm

I have a server that I would like to virutalize from a physical box to a ESXi 4.1 host. The physical server is attached to a fibre channel SAN and has 2 LUNs from the SAN attached. I am wondering how to migrate these LUNs to the VM.

Should it be possible to just present these LUNs to the ESXi Host and then attach them to the VM as a RDM? Then the OS will pickup on the LUN and connect the drives back?

Correct, if you present these LUN to the ESX host server, and then ADD Virtual Disks to the Virtual Machine and specify RDMs, you will be able to attach these LUNs without data loss.

Thanks, just want to be sure instead of nuking 2 TB of data and having restore from tape.
