Hey Everyone -

I have a client who has a SBS 2008 Premium Server and would like to run a small virtual server (2008 Standard) on that server as a print server. I've heard from one of my partners that it is not possible since they should have installed the Esxi server first then install the SBS 2008 and then another virtual server for the print server.

However, I think it's possible since Premium offers that feature with Hyper-V enabled...

Am I way off? Is this possible to run a Virtual Server on an already installed SBS 2008 Prem? Also, is this possible using the free version of VMWare? I looked on their site last night and everything looks a lot different than it did about 2 years ago.
