We currently have OCS 2007 R2 Standard running on VMWare - IM and Presence only (and internal only).  We also use Live Meeting (internal only)
I am researching what it will take to deploy an edge server, so we can use Live Meeting publicly.  I need to know if we can deploy and edge server on VMWare.  Can anyone answer?
Thanks in advance.

Sure, you can deploy a server anywhere on your network with VMWare.  You may have some work to do...

The appropriate configuration would be to place the Edge server in a DMZ.  Do you manage your network security, or does someone else manage that?  What kind of firewall are you using?  Do you already have a DMZ configured?

You'll just need to add the DMZ network as an additional VLAN in your VMWare virtual switch/es.

Tell me a bit more about your environment and I can be more specific with help.

Thanks for the info.  
Our network team manages network security, as well as our firewall.  Our firewall is Cisco.  Yes, we have a DMZ, and i think we have some vmware hosts that live in the DMZ.

The only thing i know to tell you is that we have OCS 2007 R2 standard running on vmware, which sits on our internal network.  We only purchased the IM and Presence piece of it.  
Now, there is a need to use the Live Meeting piece externally.  That is why prompted this question, because I couldn't find any info on the web about whether it can run on vmware or not.  
Can you tell me if there will be much cost in deploying the edge so we can use Live meeting externally?
