We have 15 Lotus Domino Server – 10 Mail Servers, 2 SMTP Servers, 2  Lotus Traveler Servers and 1 Application Server. All are running on physical boxes. We want to migrate all the servers into our virtual environment running on VMware 5.5. Please advise the best approach how to achieve this goal.

Thanks in advance..
