Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 How to copy server

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?

thanks,

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 -

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).
