I'm creating some Oracle Financials test and dev VM's.   I need to add some additional disk for an Oracle data volume group.   My choices are
1) Create a new virtual disk (out of existing datastore)
2) Map to a raw device (SAN).   

Would mapping to the SAN prevent me from migrating the VM using vmotion?
