    Moving drives from onboard to 9211-8i.

    Looked and couldn't find an answer. If I shut down my host and move all the local data stores to a 9211-8i, will all the drives be recognized and the inventory of VMs which are located on the local datastores work? In other words, are the drives (onboard) identified based on drives or paths?
