Would this be possible and if so, is it simply just a case of moving the VMs to a different location and mounting the NAS as some form of storage device in the VMware console or do i do something at the dos hypervisor level ?
Just a quick update for anyone else reading this who might find it helpful.
I was able to setup a directory on the NAS and enable NFS on that directory. This enabled me to mount the drive as network attached storage within ESXi and i could subsequently copy the VM's files over to this directory then re-mount the VM's running from the NAS.
As for the file server, i simply enabled windows file services and added a new directory, selected the AD users who should have access then mapped it as a drive instead of the old file server.

(that's the plan - TBC)
