    I took my first step into the virtual world today! Our setup is a s follows:

    1 x Exchange2007/web box (2008)
    3 x TS (2008)
    1 x App server/DC (2008)
    1 x Storage server (2003)
    2 x to be retired boxes 1 running Successmaker (2003) and 1 DHCP (was exch 2003 box)

    I wanted another DC in the setup, the 2 retired boxes are getting old, promoting the exchange box is out, promoting one of the TSs is doable but not advisable, so using Hyper-V I've dropped a virtual DC onto the exchange Box. It's 2 x quad core, with 4GB RAM so plenty of guts! And as it's 64bit if more RAM is needed the option is there. When I checked the processor usage was around 12-20% and the RAM 3GB

    Remember that some 64x is not yet supported by Microsoft on VM Ware. 86x is with products like SharePoint but if you have a problem with Exchange 2007 of course on a 64x microsoft will not support you. This is something that both VM Ware and Microsoft are working on.

    It is on ESX 3.5 Update 2 (which AIUI is currently the only VMWare product that MS have validated so far).
