I just purchased dell server with 16GB. I am going to test 2005 SP1 VMs and SCVMM. I have one
quick question: Do I have to install windows 2003 64 bit on this host server since there is 16GB RAM?
Can I install w2K3 32 bit on this host server?

I assume you are going to load Virtual Server R2 on the host and if so follow this link for VS R2 OS requirements. http://www.microsoft.com/technet/virtualserver/evaluation/sysreqs.mspx
Bottomline, you don't have load the 64 bit addition of the Windows 2003 on the host.
If this post answered your question please mark it as such. Thanks:-)
