Virtualization for testing purposes

I wanted to know what your thoughts are regarding virtualzation when it comes to a "test" environment?  This is more with assistance in understanding how I can setup a "virtual" environment where I have a cluster, 2 MS servers, and virtualizing a SAN environment as well.  Lastly, how would my present AD environment come into play here...would I need to also virutalize AD as well?  As far as "virtualizating" the SAN environment would I need to go to a iSCSI environment to mimic my whole present environment?

If I have to do this i'll prefer hyper-v which i can use as much as i can do. So many flexibility along with the time.
I user VMware and with a SAN in place Vmotion + HA work wonderfully together when moving VM's around.  You can get a free license with VMware to setup a test environment.  I use the free license to test new software/solutions to check for any bugs.
