I would like to copy my environment that i currently have and create a virtual test environment.  Is there a way to make an image
or our existing domain controllers and exchange servers?

Hi lgropper,

VMware has just released this option if I'm  not mistaken.
But check out this site.

This has worked for me. Kinda expensive though. But you can use it to move a server to any hardware (including virtual servers).

sure, why not image your server/servers and restore to a virtual machine...could have a couple of fiddly bits to resolve but should be easy enough -
