Moving VM's from VMWare to Proxmox

Oct 8, 2019
We are moving all of our VMWare virtual machines to Proxmox. Moving, converting, and transferring the .vmdk to our new Proxmox server is going fine. However, we have a 5TB vmfs5 Dell RAID storage that is being used as a company shared drive. The vmdk file for that storage space is of course 5TB. We have a vm in VMWare running Windows Server 2012. The OS drive is 50GIG's and mounted to that is the 5TB storage drive. The goal is to get the Windows Server 2012 over to Proxmox (which i can do without any issues) and somehow get the 5TB storage over to Proxmox as well. I have no idea what the best method would be and what is "best practice". Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
