Hyper-V host member of its VMs-domain?
Posted on 2014-02-11
I'm planning a new domain (40 Users) and need advice what's the best way:
- one physical Hyper-V Server2012 that hosts the Virtual Machines
- and a second physical host to which the first Hyper-V replicates its VMs.
There will be about 4 Virtual machines.
should those 2 hosts be a member of the internal domain?
Or should I create a new domain just for the 2 Hyper-V hosts?
I want those hosts to be in the same domain because I did not accomplish a replication of VMs between 2 hosts that are not in the same domain. (always getting certificate/FQDN errors)(I tried that before at home, no luck).
If they are in the same domain they can use kerberos.
(And of course I know that VM-Replication is no replacement for backup, all VMs are backed up to a external LTO-5 drive)
btw: there is no "Hyper-V" topic in the "Select Topics" list, am I right?
