Today we were needing to a do a full restore of one of our servers; however, we did not have enough space on the LUN to take a snapshot of the system disk of the VM and perform a full restore.  So I decided I would svmotion the VM system disk to another LUN.

svmotion said NO!

It seems, if a VM has independent-persistent disks, svmotion will not move any virtual disks, even if the independent-persistent disks are remaining on their original LUN.  I currently do not have my vSphere 4.0 RC hosts connected to a SAN, so I can not test if this is still the case in vSphere 4.0.
