comment vmware vs virtual server 2005
+1 for mentioning the native VHD boot on Windows 7. It's a killing feature in Win7. I see the possibility of the future desktop virtualization solution. VMware and other vendors should catch up that route too.

I do believe this still works. However, I suppose whoever wants to do this have the proper rights accessing the remote computer.

comment How to run VMWare ESX or ESXi in a virtual machine?
It isn't really a typical Q&A. Maybe you should ask and answer it yourself. :) Or since you mentioned it was asked many times, you can post your perfect solution there too.

@David, that's very true. as a sysadmin, we should be very aware of the importance of confidentiality to earn that trustfulness.

comment What are good ways to have a backup and fail over for a single exchange server in a domain?
@Robert, yes, I understand. If SAN isn't an option, which isn't really expensive nowadays anyway, make sure store VMs in the external detached storage so it can be easily attached to the new server when the old one fails. And that storage of course has to be RAID'd.

In order to make it work really well in Virtualization environment, you will need a SAN to store all your VMs.
