Forget "not recommended." Clustering ADDS is not supported and DOES break stuff. There is NO reason to cluster domain controllers since ADDS is a multimaster replicating design. There is zero benefit to clustering.

Dear Bros,

I am actually planning to cluster between 2 domains controllers only for hosting virtual machines.. not for any other services.

Is it still recommended??

No. You shouldn't be installing ADDS and Hyper-V in the same OSE and you can't cluster them if ADDS is installed.
