Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Yes, SQL Server is a great app to run within a VM, see: Windows Virtualization Blog for more information. Also, with the Management Packs from OpsMgr, understanding how your SQL VM is running is a snap.

Yes you can run SQL within a VM, provided that the resources required by the SQL Server database can be provided by the virtual environment. Not every database can be run within a VM.
