Running SBS under Virtual PC

I downloaded the trial version of Virtual PC and installed a full SBS instance under it:

Next step - I will create a number of Windows XP workstations, so my server won't be alone in this cruel world 🙂

This is interesting, I can set up the IT infrastructure of a small business under Virtual PC! But seriously now, this is useful to exercise my ultimate scenario: backup and disaster recovery of an SBS under Virtual PC. Hopefully this will make it into another blog post.

    What was the memory configuration required on the machine which was running virtual PC?

    I reserved 512 MB. The server itself (hosting the Virtual PC instance) has 1 GB of memory.

    Thanks, Adi
