How would you recommend assigning resources for cpu and memory for the following setup:

- running ESXi 4.0 on HP ML350, 8Gb ram, 2 Xeon 2.33Ghz, 4 x 146SAS 15k
- for now, will run only 1 VM for SBS2008 Standard. Main use: file server, Exchange
- later on (6 months or more): might add a VM for BES server or Terminal Server, maybe both

If I assign all resources and 100% utilization to this single VM, what will be the impact on the SBS2008 OS when I will reduce its resources (ie: assign only 1 cpu instead of 2: will I need to reconfigure the OS) ?
