Clone SAP installation using VMWare

Hi Gurus,

I have a question regarding VMware and its ability to create Clone/Image of SAP installation. Here is the question in Detail.

We have a SAP Installation (R/3 4.7)...It is running fine as of now.

The Server on which it is hosted is having lot of hardware issues and I want to switch the hardware.

The question is...

1) Can I somehow clone my current SAP installation to another hardware which is better and more stable.

2) Can I do it through VMware...and by this I mean can I create a image using VMware and put it on the new hardware and run it

as a Virtual Instance on the new hardware.

3) Finally can this virtual Image be converted to real on the new system.

These are merely challanges I want to venture and try out. Please provide any inputs in order to do this.
