Physical RDM to virtual RDM

I have a 2.3TB physical RDM and want to convert it to virtual RDM. Can this be done in vmfs data store ver5.0?
We have VMware ver6.U1.

Yes, this can be done quite easily. You need to edit the configuration file (e.g. Edit VM), remove the existing physical RDM, add back and select virtual.

Make sure you have a backup of the VMX file before you start!
