vCenter 5.1 Storage vMotion Physical RDM

I understand how the VMDK file in a physical RDM is only a pointer to a LUN. My question is we have to move the LUN the VM is connect to  another SAN. The VM can already see the new destination. What is the best way to move or update the RDM file? Should we use Storage vMotion or update it manaully

We are in favour of using the technology and licenses that were purchased, and use Storage vMotion, less can go wrong, with manually updating files.
