Hi I am new to virtualization and want to run this by the memebership. I am looking to virtualize two different servers on a physical Windows 2008 server with Hyper-V. The physical server is 32gb ram, Dell T610 with (6) 300gb SAS drives in raid configuration with 1.3tb available in (1) large l drive.  (2) XEON 5620 processors at 2.4ghz. In Windows it lists 16 cores. If you need more hardware info let me know.

What I would like to do if possible is setup the host OS with Windows 2008 server with Hyper-V and have a virtual server for SBS2008 server and an additional virual server for Windows 2008 server running terminal server and Filemaker Pro. as well as Microsoft Office that would be available for 10 users on the entire system.

I would appreciate if you can give me pointers as far as raid configuration, memory suggestions, any virtualization tips/advice.

Thanks in advance!!
