    NPM, NCM Integration and Virtualization


      We currently have NPM SLX and NCM running on two separate physical servers each running their own SQL instances.  The ultimate goal is one virtual server running both (and perhaps one physical server for the SQL).  I've got a couple questions about this type of setup.

      1. My understanding of the SQL backend is that there is an NPM instance on both servers.  How does the integration work in such a case specifically in regards to combining the SQL databases?
      2. I see that virtualization is supported, but that it is recommended that the SQL instance be housed on a separate physical box, and the VM be given a dedicated NIC.  Any other virtualization caveats?
