I want to setup a test environment for a new piece of software that we are installing, which requires access to a domain controller. I would like to setup a test environment that is completely separate from my existing Domain but not sure if this can be done via hyper -v. Is it possible to setup two new VIrtual Machines, one VM is a DC (on a brand new domain) and the second VM installing the new piece of software. The host OS will be on domain 1 and the two Virtual Machines will be on domain 2. I do not need domain 1 and domain 2 to be able to communicate. I want to make sure my existing "in production" domain 1 is not affected.
