Hi Experts,
Like most people, I'm new to Windows Server 2008.  I'm looking at installing SBS on a new box and installing virtual servers on this server.  

1.  Can anybody guide me on how many virtual servers I can install on SBS premium?
2. How is this licensed?  Does a license for Windows server standard come with this? How many more SBS or windows Servers am I licensed to install?

I presume  the idea is to install windows server standard with Hyper-V as the host machine and then install SBS as a virtual machine?  

If anybody can give me some information or point me in the right direction, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thanks,
EE

I would suggest you start here:

In short, it depends on the version of SBS you have - but you can have AT MOST One additional Virtual Server installed without purchasing additional copies of server.
