[MERGED] SAN connected windows server

We have just installed a new VBR server running version 9.5 , we have an existing VBR running version 8.
The version 8 server is SAN connected ( Prior to my employment)

Now its time to present all the existing VMFS to this new server. I don't like the thought of presenting VMFS volumes to windows.... Is it something that can go wrong? Something special I have to think about?
The new version 9.5 server is installed on windows 2016 and my existing VMFS volumes are spread of on 3 different 3par SANs.

Guess i only need some comforting words from you specialist before I dare to press the "present" button :)

Hi Johan,

Just for you to be calm see FAQ information about Direct Storage Access Mode.
