Hi There!

I would like to have a few of my smaller clients running SBS 2011 Premium on a single server (They understand the performance issues). I am wondering if it's a valid config (licensing wise) to install SBS 2011 on Physical hardware and The 2008 R2 Windows Instance under Hyper-V installed on top of SBS 2011?

There is one main reason I prefer this setup, and that is that most of my clients still run tape, and I can't see how I can backup both OS's to tape if they are both installed as guests in Hyper-V installed bare metal.
