    Virtual Server 2005 R2 + Exchange 2007

    Just discovered this as I wanted to look at the VHD of Exchange 2007.

    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserv...r/default.mspx
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

    Its rather nice and free. Apologies if this is old news.

    I was using Virtual PC and all those images transfer across perfectly.

    Good ol Microsoft

    "Note that Virtual Server 2005 R2 requires that guest operating systems be 32-bit."

    Exchange 2007 is 64bit only.

    Even my ESX servers can't run 64 bit guests, but thats because I have the older single core EMT64 Xeons, if I had the dual cores then I would be fine for 64bit guests.

    Ah, its a preview You aren't going to virtualise 2007 :P

    The non release versions also had 32bit. I know that there is limited support for 2007 on 32bit, but features are disabled, and its not optimised at all.

    You beat me to it.

    I think upgrading the Exchange 2007 is going to need a bit of planning (and a rebuild). I can't wait.

    When you read the info on upgrading etc they say near enough what you have just said, it needs carefull planning, migration and in all cases a complete new install as the previous exchanges were 32bit only so you cannot just wack the disk in and upgrade this time.
