I like Parallels, especially because it is capable of creating multiple network adapters and assigning a real adapter to it very easily. This would allow you to connect a server to two different networks for example. It's entirely possible to set up a virtual software router like that. I now have all my Windows Servers running in Parallels VM's on a couple of Intel Apple Servers. The main thing to keep in mind is system resources. Make sure you have plenty of memory and drive space. Creating fixed (not expanding) virtual drives is recommended as well. Also, if running Active Directory in a replication environment, disable the snapshots feature on both the replica and the master. Restoring a snapshot in this scenario will create a syncing issue called a USN rollback between the replica and the master which is not easy to resolve. Some say it is impossible, but I have recovered before.
