    Hi there:

    So we have a 2003 VM SQL server that we need to upgrade to 2012. SQL and the OS are on C; data on E. E is a separate vmdk file. Rather than bring the server down, my plan is to build a new Server to run concurrently and then point everything there when complete.

    So, my question is: While configuring the new server, can it share the E drive vmdk with the current server?

    VSphere 4.1, if that matters.
