XenCenter is hosting 2 Windows Server 2008 vm's running Sql server 2008, I need to move one 500GB SR from one to the other, is it as simple as shutting down the vm's and detach and attach the SR? Does the data remain? Sql backup (bak)files in this case.

Yes, it should be that simple.  As always, with mission critical data, I would recommend testing this first with non-mission critical data, and then making sure you have backups (or are ok with data loss).

If you want more details on the process, just ask.
