Thanks. So it would be recommended to install both on physical boxes? I have seen the document on MS not supporting VMware

There is no harm running Exchange in ESX/Vmware environment


Only thing since it is high I/O operations application Microsoft will not suggest to Install SQl/Exchange in Vmware Environment.


Note: If you have any problem with Exchange, Microsoft PSS will not support you J

Hi Guys,


We have an exchange 2003 server in a VMware environment. I am sure I have read somewhere that it is not adviceable to run either Exchange or Sql on VM's. Anyone got any documentaion / whitepaper to back that up, or have I got it wrong.
