  • Are there any inherent issues in running SSAS (and SSRS, for that matter) 2005 on a virtual machine?

  • No specifically, just the same issues you get running anything in a virtual environment in that there is a slight performance overhead in the virtualization. Functionally everything works the same.

  •   ...and they do like resources.

         We have the discussion here a lot - and the gneeral consensus is these kinds of things are best put on physical servers - at least in production.  I tend to have more faith in virtual than average, but when my job is on the line, I pick physical server over virtual.
