I need to perform basic failover clustering
1 server needs to be the domain controller
How do I set up a basic domain from scratch
The domain controller machine needs to be able to run two virtualized instances of SQL Server


Basically I will be running 3 operating systems on one machine

I would not suggest running VMware Server on a domain controller, do you have other systems to work with?
