We have a server that has 2 disk in it now and the VMware vm is having issues. So we want to remove one of the disk from this vm and put that disk into another new vm by itself.

The steps below are my plan to fix this issue.

1.  Remove the disk from the old server and attach to the new server
  2.  Do a datastore migration so that the vmdk is renamed to match the server and moves into the proper server name folder on the datastore

I think the steps I listed here will work but just want to confirm with the experts...
