I have 3 exch 2010 servers that are running on esxi 4.1 and I need to move their datastores to new datastores on another san. I cant use the san copy to move them because of the age and setup of the old san. So I was thinking of doing  storage vmotion but they have like 6 different disk which are all scattered between different datastores..
So what would be the best way for me to migrate the data from the old datastores over to the new datastores on the same host?

I would recommend Storage vMotion as well.  When you use Storage vMotion -> on Storage selection -> click on advance, you will have option to choose which disk goes to which datastore.

Hope this helps.
