Is there a benefit to using Virutal Servers on a domain server?
Posted on 2011-09-14
I have several small offices (10-50 users) that are running 2 Windows domain servers to handle domain (redundant DNS, AD, sharing of AD roles, DFS, etc). These servers also handle printer sharing and file sharing, in addition to any network applications, such as centralized A/V.
Up to this point, I have never setup and configured virtual servers within these 2 physical servers. I have read so much about the use of virtual servers, but I am wondering if there is any benefit to running virtuals within my configurations mentioned above. Are any of you doing this? If so, what are the benefits compared to just running a single physical server instance?
