I am in the process of setting up a Server 2008 R2 AD \ DC and someone suggested i use a linux based OS with KVM to virtualise the entire system. In my humble opinion, why would i want to virtualise payware with opensource software. Is this even a good idea? I also want to deploy an Exchange server in the newly created domain. Any advice would be appreciated.
The reason i want to run a virtualised os FROM my Server 2008 r2 machin e, is i want to run a CentOs firewall.
