We would like to virtualize our BPA 9 server.  It is currently running on a physical box and we would like to use the VMWare utility to migrate the Physical server to the VM. 

Has anyone done this?  Are there any issues with having to reinstall or reapply licenses?  Trying to figure out what I might run into.

Hi Wayne,

There should not be any problems with virtualizing an existing system with BPA installed on it. As long as the VM meets system requirements, there should not be a problem.
