  2. Hi there --

    The Virtual Server documentation at the Virtual Server Technical Resources
    Web Site should provide you with all of the information you need. The URL
    is

  3. Hi,

    you can use VMWare server for virtualisation. It's best solution considering
    your requirement.It's a free download from VMWare site.

    thanks PankaJ,
    it works on VMWare? there is no issue creating the cluster share drive? if
    so that might be a good way to go.
