    Yes it can but Microsoft recommends dedicated server.

    Accepted Solution

    I virtualize it as a VM running on my otherwise dedicated physical domain controller with Hyper-V. My second domain controller for the site is a VM running inside my Hyper-V cluster. Don't put the SCVMM server onto a host managed by SCVMM.
