I have not, but when I moved to a virtualized infrastructure for a
consulting gig a few years ago, I went with VMware (ESXi in this case)
because I needed to run SCO Openserver 5, which Just Will Not Run(tm)
under VirtualBox. This may be a similar situation.
If you can share your ESIX disks (please?? =)) I will try it on my
VMware host machine here and report back.
