[CDBUG-talk] FreeNAS in a VM?

I'm looking to deploy new file servers at work for live network home
directories on Mac workstations. FreeNAS looks promising, given that its a
nice web GUI with Open Directory (Apple's OpenLDAP & Kerberose solution)
compatibility and AFP (Mac file serving) support.
I have a bunch of VM resources that I can allocate to this. So that leaves
me wondering if I can do that. I know that ZFS is moot in a VM. Its even
counter productive, since it expects to have direct access to the drives.
So what do you think? Could I run FreeNAS using UFS in a VM with about 8GB
- 16GB of RAM? Is there another option for Open Directory compatible file
serving (AFP, SMB, or NFS) from within a VM? Or even LDAP compatible in
Thanks in advance for the advise!
