Exchange server is not supported on virtual servers

To my surprise, Microsoft does not support Exchange in a virtualized environment - not even in their own Virtual Server/PC. Read the support statement in this KB. Consequently, you should stick to using virtual technology in testing scenarios.

Thanks for the comment - we love getting feedback on our blog ;-)
To add to the comment I later blogged about the fact that Exchange will be supported from Exchange 2003 SP2 (http://msgoodies.blogspot.com/2005/04/exchange-server-2003-sp2-will-be.html) Also this KB article (http://support.microsoft.com/?id=897614) states which software isn't supported on Microsoft Virtual Servers (And when/if it will be supported)
