Connecting a Physical Disk to a VM

I have a physical MS machine running Server 2003 that I need to retire.  It has 3-4 SAN LUNs attached to it with several TB of data.  I need to attach it to a Windows 2008 R2 VM.  I need all the data preserved of course... This should be as easy as presenting the LUNs to the ESXi 5 hosts, then adding existing disks to the VM right?

sounds look you got it.

just make sure that the host has permissions to access the luns.

present to the host.

attach to the vm as a rdm
