Subject: [dba-VB] running virtual machines in Windows 2008

I have always used VMWare VMs.  Free, easy.  Now the old 1.10 won't install
in my new Windows 2008 
server.  The core service fails to install.  Sigh.

I have been considering moving to Microsoft's equivelent, and Windows 2008
has the hypervisor 
built-in so here we go.

I am looking at WinImage as a conversion tool.  No idea what is involved.  I
need to get my VMs out 
of VMWare into ? in MS land.

I still have my old server up and will likely keep it around for awhile so I
can continue to run the 
old VMWare VMs until I manage to convert.

Any comments or words of wisdom?
