Vmware - vmotion question

Hi all,

Vmware 5.5

I have a linux server configured as a thick disk that is consuming 999GB of a 1 terrabyte LUN. The server has a production database which in total is consuming 360GB. I need to try and move the server to free up the LUN so that we can delete, so I need to move the server off. What is the safest method to move this to another LUN and can i change it to a thin disk if i do this?

Thanks

Storage vMotion - do you have a license for it, to complete Live.

OR..

Power Down the VM, and Manually Migrate (e.g. Right Click VM).
