Virtual Test Environment

New to virtual.  I have a DR server for sql server 2005 and great plains 9.0.  Is it possible to virtualize this environment without installing everything again?  can create a virtual copy of an existing server set up?

VMWare has a Converter that will create a VM from an existing machine.  I believe it will also create a VM from a TrueImage disc image.

You might be able to use Ghost (or similar) to create an image and then restore the image to a VM - it depends on the OS and hardware differences between the existing hardware and the virtual hardware.
