My work environment consists of 2 physical machines (W1 and W2). One is an IIS server, the other has SQL Server 2005.
I want to replicate the environment on my Windows 7 laptop using virtual PC. I want something like this:
Host laptop: Windows 7 VM1: Windows 2003 with Visual Studio 2008 and IIS VM2: Windows 2003 with SQL Server 2005
How do I setup the networking on each VM? Internal, Shared NAT, loopback adaptor?
If I use the Microsoft Loopback adapter for both VMs, will I still be able to access the outside work environment from VM1? I cannot bind both virtual machines to the host physical NIC because of computer naming conflicts with my work environment.
