Probably a dumb questions but here goes. I want to repurpose a W2K8R2 server that is currently providing a home for some shared folders. Is it possible to move a virtual disk file in a SAN from a W2K8R2 server (running in a VM) to a W2K3R2 server (also running in a VM) and retain the same security and sharing permissions? I know that I can use the File Migration tool to move the folders from one server to another but I was thinking that a faster way and one that wouldn't stream larges amount of data across the vswitch would be to reassign the VMDK file. I understand that the mount points on the desktop clients would need remapping after the move but this bit I could handle by changing the login scripts.
