    Converting a server with ISCSI SAN mappings

    jasonvines Enthusiast

      I am looking to convert a physical server to virtual that has about 3.5 TB of data on an ISCSI SAN.  My plan is to only convert the c drive and then map the existing LUNs used on the SAN using RDM.   The problem I am running into during testing is that mapping an RDM for a virtual machine to a LUN that has been in use by a windows server.  It prompts me to format the drive after it shows up.  Will this work when I am connecting back through RDM with the original server that had the exclusive lock on the LUN?  We are dealing with a very critical server and don't want to go through a test with it.


      Thanks for any help.
