Default Virtualization

Please Login to Remove!

Hey,
I currently have a linux box which is fairly powerful. I was planning on loading VMware on it, and running 2 win2k3 instances - one for exchange, the other for BES express.

Has anyone attempted this before? Advice? Opinions? Suggestions?

You should be fine with a small number of users. VMware is now officially supported with the latest release of BES.

well, its never going to be more than 10 users or so.

Something I have never got a straight answer for. Can one BES support multiple domains?

Just my input from running the BES server inside of a VM ware virtual machine. I did the P2V conversion and I had a few problems with services, but now all is happy and it works great. I run about 30 users on this BES server.

Excellent. Do you run 2 seperate servers for Exchange and the BES or do you run them on just one VM?
