HP SAN permissions after move to new server

Sorry to ask such a simple question but HP is not my speciality.
I need to do a hardware refresh for one of my file servers.
I've currently have a HP P2000 MSA connect to this server by fibre.
I would liek to move this fibre as is over to the new servers.
My question is, will the share and folder permissions be kept?
Or is there a migration path that I need to follow?

My main goal is to move the P2000 to the new server AND maintain the file/folder permissions.

Assuming Windows then if it's in the same domain the permissions will be retained. The share info can be exported from the reg key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\lanmanserver\Shares and imported assuming same drive letter and same version of Windows.

You'll have to change the presentation on the MSA2000 to take access away from the old server/WWN and present it to the new one assuming you're not transferring the HBA; don't let both servers have access at the same time or it'll corrupt the data.

@andyalder; I should have added that the old and new servers are in different domains and the version of Windows is different.
From Windows 2003 R2 to Windows 2008 R2

This server is also currently a target server in a couple of DFS shares.

I just found this link

Will do some reading.

Any other suggestions/recommendations?
