i need some advice here in migrating my virtual machines to a new hyper-v host.  

my current environment has my VM's with local storage on the server and i need to move them over to another hyper-v server that will have SAN storage.  

what would be the best way to import them into the new environment and use the new storage?  
i am also building out a VMM server to see if that would help.

What version of Windows is your current environment on? 2008 R2 with Hyper-V?

Are you migrating to Server 2012 or Server 2012 R2? This is very important to know as the migration process differs between the two. VMM isn't really required but is nice to have.

So you are migrating from Server 2012 R2 to Server 2012 R2?

If so, you should simply be able to Export the VM from Hyper-V Manager to local storage on the old host, copy the exported files to the new Hyper-V Host, then use the Import feature in Hyper-V Manager on the new host and place the VM on the SAN storage when you are prompted in the VM import wizard.
