How can I convert VMDK to RDM in Vmware ESXi 4.1

I have to vm networks setup with vm's on them attached to san storage and I am trying to setup replication software to replicate the datastores (vmfs) from the production site to the dr site and they are telling me that I need to setup RDM  visble to the esx host for the one san on the dr side and the same for the one on the production side.
How can I get this accomplished?

you use the vmkfstools -i command at the commandline

VMware have a good Kb article here
