Virtualisation Recommendations - 22.Aug.2009 9:42:20 AM

Hi, my company is a small office with less 100 staff, using Active Directory as our company central IT authentication and system management.

Currently, we intend to upgrade our old Windows NT server to Windows 2008. However, we intend to host our collaboration server and AD server to one physical server.

First question: Should I use MS Hyper-V or VMWare ESX hypervisor?

Second question: -
Can I install my Active Directory on a virtual machine (i.e, on the Guest OS)
I will also intend to install my collaboration, DNS & DHCP servers as virtual machine as well, the physical server will the the hypervisor host server, hosting all the virtual machines

Any comments for this configurations, would my Active Directory work or should I install my AD Server on the physical server together with VMWare/MS Hyper-V while others on the virtual machines?

Thanks in advance
