Permanent Exchange 2010 "Swing Box"

I'm in the process of potentially upgrading multiple sites from Exchange 2003 to 2013...

I have built a VM with Exchange 2010 to stage the migration. I was wondering if there was a way to keep this VM as a permanent temp server so to speak? Meaning, I completed a migration this weekend gone and I'm trying not to have to uninstall Exchange 2010 each time I want to use this VM for other domains. Is there any way to do this?

No.
Exchange 2010 is domain dependant, you cannot pick up a machine from one domain and use it on another. It will need to be a fresh build for each site to ensure it works correctly.

The only suggestion I can make is to have a machine that is built and patched (including Exchange pre-requisites) which you don't add to any domain or install Exchange on. Then take a copy of that machine to use in each domain, installing Exchange 2010 on to the server once it has been added to the domain.
