Hi Donald Yes it is possible and it is supported but it isn't recommended for performance reasons. Just be careful with what virtual machines that you put on the same host with a node of the RMS in case of resource contention. And keep an eye on Disk IO. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb309428.aspx Operations Manager 2007 Virtualization Support Microsoft supports running all Operations Manager 2007 components in any physical or virtual environment that meets the minimum requirements that are stated in this document. However, for performance reasons, Microsoft recommends against virtualizing the root management server (RMS), the OperationsManager database, and the OperationsDW database. There are some restrictions on virtualization functionality that can be used with Operations Manager 2007. Specifically, virtual computers running any Operations Manager 2007 component must not make use of any functionality where all activity on the virtual computer is not immediately committed to the virtual hard drive. This includes making use of point-in-time snapshots and writing changes to a temporary virtual hard drive. This is true no matter what virtualization technology is used with Operations Manager 2007.
