Can you run 2 Virtual Domain Controllers on the same Hyper-V Machine?

Ultimately we would like to have a virtual domain controller that will handle all local request. The second virtual domain controller will be used by a satellite site via VPN to authenticate TS users who need access to an application on our end.

I have already created the 2 virtual machines(I have not installed AD on either yet). I am able to ping the satellite site from within the VM and vice versa.

I appreciate whatever direction can be given....Thanks.

sure you can do that, however Microsoft recommends to have 1 physical DC at least.

You can have 2 DCs running on one Hyper-v server this is not an issue at all. I would not put your Hyper-v Host on the domain since it would not be able to logon since your DCs are virtual and have not started by the time your Hyper-v server starts.

Again no issue running 2 DCs as Virtual Machines on the same Hyper-v server
