I need to virtualize one of our Windows 2008 servers. The server is configured with both internal storage and two large external volumes on our SAN.
The server is considered critical and can not be down for long. My original plan was to shut off all services, disconnect the SAN and virtualize the server. connect the SAN volumes to our VMWare cluster and reconnect them to the virtualized server.
After thinking about it I realized the drives on the SAN volumes are not .vmdk files. Is there anyway to do this without having to recreate the SAN Volumes on the virtual machine?
