I am new to hyper-v. I have a new server and plan to install two VM's with W2012 R2.
I installed W2012 R2, then added the hyper-v role, then installed the two VM's using the GUI. Simple enough.
Seems like there are three copies of the OS. If all do auto-updates, overtime, it will chew a lot of disk space too to patch downloads.
Need advice on approach. Using core OS, instead of GUI?
I scratched the machine, and installed Hyper-V first from MS Download site. Was going to setup the VM's, but can't make much progress setting up the VM's using command line. Just too complicated.
What would the best approach be in installing os's? One VM is a web server. One VM is SQL server.
Does the base machine need w2012, or is hyper-V enough?
