Not necessarily.  As long as all ESX your hosts can see the same lun, you can use VMotion.  (Given that it is enabled and configured correctly.)

Subject: [olug] OT: Choosing Disk Type in VMware/RHEL 5

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?
