Hi fellows!
I have a quick question for you this morning!
I've just installer windows server 2008 and added the Hyper-V Role.
The installation process of hyper-v and the windows 2003 instance have gone pretty well.
However, i've been told that in Windows Server 2008 Standard, you cannot have more than 1 instance running(installed) in Hyper-V.  The problem is that i need about 5 of them to create a test environnement  (WinXp and Win2003 instance).

So my question is, is it possible to add LICENSE to Hyper-V to be able to host more VM?
If not, is there any known issue at installing 2 virtualization management software? Like VMware or watever?

I really need to create the test environnement as VM in the same physical server!
Thank you!
