    i want to build a citrix test lab for testing purposes and i want to install a few copies of windows server evaluation on a few virtual machines.
    is it possible to install a few copies of windows servers on virtual machines of are you limited to only installing once copy on a virtual machine?
    i would be downloading the vhd from microsoft website.

    Yes you can, you can download the ISO / VMD from the link below. You can also extend the evaluation time by using the command "slmgr -rearm".

    I'd recommend creating your clean base OS with applications / config you want, then save a snapshot of it - use that going forward so you can also break the OS and return to the same snapshot afterwards. In my test VM, I default to "Power Off (Revert to Snapshot) each time to use it.
