vMotion of Clustered Windows VMs

Hi,

I want to migrate our clustered windows 2k8 virtual machines from one datastore say DS1 to another one DS2. I know there are limitations about mscs vMotion but I am looking for a walk around solution. I'm runnig out of space in DS1 and it is SATA. I have to migrate to DS2 which is large enough and FC.

Cluster: windows server 2k8 x64

1 GB Quorum

500 GB shared disk for this cluster service

Node 1: win 2k8 x64

100 GB local disk

Node 2: win 2k8 x64

100 GB local disk

I have a trivial plan that is,

- move 2nd node which is inactive

- in the 2nd node change configurations of quorum and shared disk.

- power up the 2nd node recreate the cluster and make 2nd node as active

- shut down the 1st node and migrate it too

- edit configurations of quorum and shared disk

- power up the 1st node and recreate cluster

but this plan has many weak points.

Does anybody has an idea about this request?

Thanks in advance...
