    Default ZCS Virtualization pros/cons

    Hello,

    Our company is thinking about virtualizing Zimbra 6, on a virtual machine, RHEL or other type, we don't know yet, and that machine will be deployed on an ESX 4.0i server. We have several questions regarding virtualization:
    - what are the disadvantages when virtualizing Zimbra?
    - are there any known issues about virtualization that are unsolved? (any links or posts ?)
    - is there a "best practice" thread or documentation about Zimbra virtualization, like "how to install/configure ZCS on a ESX virtual machine?"

    I hope you all understood my questions and I'm thanking you in advance for your replies.

    Bogdan

    We are running ZCS 6.0.8 (NE and OSS, two separate environments) within ESX 4.0 without any issues. It has been great.
