I am upgrading a Windows 2003 server to 2008. One of my disks on 2003 server is about 700GB in size. Both machines will remain in production for the time being but can I disconnect the 700GB drive from the 2003 server and connect it to the 2008 server without losing data. I have no problems with redoing the shares and permissions on the 2008 server...I just dont want to have to manually copy 700 GB from one server share to another. The vmdk I want "move" is on a SAN so the actual file doesnt need to physically move at all although I would like to be able to put it in a folder named after the new VM as well as rename the vmdk itself to correctly reflect the VM it's associated too.
Has anyone tried this?
