Tommy:

This is not something you want to do unless your "Storage" server is NOT accessing any storage.

The reason is, when you configure your Host Definition on your EVA, or MSA or other Storage Devices, you set the type of your VCB Proxy server to the same as your VMware ESX servers.... NOT a Windows profile.

Even if you were not accessing storage on your WSS for use with Windows, I would not do this. It is a total waste of a server and is better handled with a different server model.
