hi guys,

I've run out of space on one of our datastsores. It consists of around 5 x 258gb .vmdk's on there. So I'll need to move it somewhere with more space.

It's a Windows 2008 R2 server and it's a Fileserver. So it contains a load of data.

If I shut the VM down, and then go to Migrate-Datastore and move it elsewhere, will this work?

Thank you
