Share LUN in different vCenters


I have a vCenter 5.0 with some hosts/VMs inside.

Built a new vCenter 5.1a and have some hosts(no storage for now).

I will like to know if there is any problem present the same LUNS that are in the vCenter hosts(and also being use) to the hosts that I have in this new vCenter 5.1a.

I am not talking about the VMFS version, but use the same LUN in two different vCenter.

Don’t plan to migrate VMs at this stage, just want to use the space that I have in some of the LUNs.

Thank You

Yes I know, but since hosts are manage by differnet vCenter that is why my question.

So no issues and is supported?
Yes, it's supported. with no issues.

the LUNs datastores are a ESXi host resource.
