Exchange 2007 on a VM

I need some face time with Exchange 2007. My previous two attempts to run it off the company's data center servers, almost always got hijacked.

There was a big VIP meeting and the servers got pulled to support the backend. On top of that, add some customer requests, my VMs ended up being toast.

The next best thing was to run it as a guest on my notebook. Surprisingly it turn in a reasonable performance. I will try to post the loadgen results once it finishes.

Update. Here it is. The guest setup is 1 CPU, 384MB ram with 2x 8GB disks, on a Lenovo 3000 N100, 1GB RAM and 1.73G CPU. I think I need to increase the number of test users.
