While sympathy is always much appreciated, that hasn't exactly moved me forwards ;)

@TomTom, ok, makes sense. Plan is direct 1:1 copy anyway. I like that article, by the way.

Also, I wonder how nasty the process of migrating non AD W2000 not R2 to 2012 will be. And how long it is likely to take.

@TomTom - can you expand on coupling physical servers 1:1 - do you mean some automated way, or just manage the two by hand ? If automated - is there "One Microsoft Way"(TM) to do this ?

@pauska - I see you and TomTom are not getting on - seriously, would you like to post an answer suggesting your proposal for handling the issue. I genuinely would like to hear suggestions from people

@TomTom, powershell - yep, looks a likely solution. Failover Cluster just looks like way too much expansion of Windows setup, for no real benefit.

@TomTom, re handle HA in client: That's gonna be a pain in the ... for a rag-tag collection of various Centos's and a couple of ubuntu's

Not entirely sure I understand what you are saying here (certainly due to my lack of knowledge on windows systems - last time I was a sysadmin for domains was NT4!). Optopn 1 would have clones on each guest on each vm server, so standby guests could not spin up as their (static) ip's could clash.

Yeah. Currently server running VM's is W2008 Std (not R2), so an upgrade looks likely to be needed anyway. Half an hour's downtime while we spin up the guests on the standby is not a crisis. But automagic transfer from one to the other would be nice (especially if it's 3am and I'm tucked up in bed). But I feel very vulnerable with one VM server - if the power supply goes bang, or the processor explodes, I am stuffed.
