Take a AD System State Backup and Exchange Server System State along with Infomation store and Logs backup
Now use the virtual environment that will not talk to production and restore these backups should be ok....
Else take Ghost Images
You need to install Exchange with the same Exchange organization name. You also need to create Admin group and Storage group with the same names as the original production server is. Then just restore the databases from the backup. Alternatively you can also use Recovery storage groups to test your backups. The limitation in that method is you can only restore one storage group at a time.
