I was wondering if it was possible to move a Virtual instance of a Windows 2003 environment from the Virtual Server to a physical machine?  If so, How?

I want to do this so I can preconfigure a Domain Controller for my friends company.  I was thinking if I configured a virtual machine I could then just transfer it to a physical machine to make installation easier for him.  And I don't hav to travel this way.  What do you think is this possible?

I would recoment you to setup an ESX 3.5i server at your friends company.
Create an VM at your own pace...
Copy it to a external drive or something like it.
So you can place it installed and configured on to your friends company ESX server.

it is posible , but not recomended , to go from P2V.
see : http://www.vmware.com/support/v2p/

Hope it helps.

Xfreddie.
