I was wondering if anyone has tried such a scenario as I will describe

I have a ESX3 server that connects to a SAN and the NW6.5 SP5 is isntalled
on the SAN and boots up that way. Which works fine. No problems so far.

With the NW OS up and running and just the SYS volume on one LUN of the SAN
, I now want to connect the NW server to another LUN on the SAN to attach
storage to it. This is to prevent me from having to create a very large
VMDK file (500GB) that contains the SYS and DATA volumes.

Does this sound possible?
