Q. Should I install System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) on a physical box, or can I install it on a virtual machine (VM)?

A. VMM is the preferred management platform for your virtual environment and the question often comes up if VMM should be installed on its own physical box, or if can it be a VM. VMM is support in both physical and virtual environments. The only condition is that if VMM is virtualized, you won't be able to migrate it to another virtual host, because VMM manages migrations.
