Morning Mike

Right now it is on a single core xeon e server IBM but I will be moving it
to a Dell Quad core poweredge server with 16 gigs of ram so I should be 
good to go there.

The last thing I did last night was move the VM to another nic card so I 
will be testing that today and tomorrow. 

Thanks for the tips though, I fell a little better knowing I'm going in 
the right direction.


-> You can run VB on a single core with 4G Memory but put simply that 
isn't the target platform

-> The assumption is that you will be running on a server (not desktop) 
-> max RAM and at least a Quad Core+.  A dual core will work but you 
would be
-> limited to a very small number of Virtual Machines even in headless 

-> You also want to make sure your Host OS is using a physically separate
-> Network Interface Card to the Virtual Machines.  When you start 
sharing the
-> host NIC with the VM's it slows things down and potentially causes odd
-> Windows TCP Stack problems.

-> When you have the server hardware in place you can then fine tune the
-> Settings for each of your VM's to reduce overhead and lag.

-> I suggest you experiment as much as possible before moving everything 
to a
-> production environment.

-> Mike
