Well, back in July last year i posted 10 steps to heaven with the installation of MOSS 2007 for usage by a developer.
Trouble was, some of the assumptions led to the need to have some manual steps at the end most notably the requirement to be attached to a corporate domain and this brought in the need to sysprep any such image so it would be unique on the ad network.
When we thought about this we realised that in a lot of ways having hte image as a domain controller made sense, we could install everything on one box and then just clone the VM. However, we didn't want to have a domain popup for every developer that was developing in Moss.
Along then came the NAT mode in VMWare Server. This allows us to run a completely private Moss domain for each developer whilst retaining corporate and internet connectivity from that VM.
After much trial and error we think we have come acrss the ideal way to carry out team development in SharePoint and i hope this helps people in developing their SharePoint solutions too.
