New Server Build

I just got me new ESX servers in for my new VMware environment. Unfortunately my NFS licenses from NetApp have not arrived yet. Is it possible to build the servers now and then move a VM to the NFS share after I get the license installed and working?

Yes, so long as there is sufficent space on a local Datastore to accomodate your VM's. When you get your NFS storage up and running you can simply shutdown the VM, download the VM machine files from your local Datastore, and then upload them to your new NFS Datastore.

Is it possible to move a VM from one ESX server to another without vmotion? With the new servers running I want to take the VM's I already created and move them over to the new servers with the nfs datastore.
