-------------------------------------------------------There are a lot of 
papers on the vmware web site, including the whole vmotion thing so that you 
can, as Elizabeth suggests, keep essential virtuals separate.

-------------------------------------------------------Do you guys know any 
good whitepapers for this? I know I'm going to need some justification to 
implement this.

-------------------------------------------------------We are a VMWare shop for 
Novell, Linux and Windows OS. We didn't go with VM for our Exchange boxes for 
political reasons, but it does work. I would not recommend moving all your 
bridgehead servers to the same VM.
Try moving a bridgehead and a none network intensive application to the same VM.

Be aware that Windows lies about the Nic speed. It will report trnsmission 
speed as either 10 MB or 1 GB no matter what speed it is transmitting. This is 
a known VMWare error.

-------------------------------------------------------It's an excellent idea. 
The trick is the loading and the resiliency. I wouldn't want to do this without 
VMotion and enough VMware physical hosts to bounce guests around should the 
loading warrant it.

I guess the moral of the tale will in the coming years be that if you are going 
to do VMware then do it properly, don't play at it with a couple of boxes just 
to save one piece of tin or so.

consolidating my Bridgeheads on VMWARE and would like to get everybody's 
feedback.
