We have a VM file server on Windows 2003 and we would like to move the data to a new Windows 2008 R2 file server.

The data resides on the D and E drives (vmdk disk files) can I remove the vmdk disks and add to the new Windows 2008r2 VM and keep the same file server name and share names.

Any thoughts on this regards to best method with minimal disruption?
