Before performing a Physical to Virtual conversion of a server, I would like to know what the best practices are in terms of evaluating whether the server is a good candidate for the conversion.

A list of requirements that need to be met before even considering a conversion from physical to Virtual server. All the servers to be converted are Windows Servers.

Things to consider before doing a conversion, perhaps a step by step outline of the things to check to ensure that an appropriate host is chosen for the conversion.

Also are there certain types of Servers or roles that are not good candidates for conversion.

A list of possible issues when performing the conversion would also be extremely helpful.

Perhaps certain kinds of port that are hard to virtualize or hardware for which there is no virtual equivalent
