2012 Hyper V

Last Modified: 2014-11-12

Just wanted some recommendations

I need to set a few VM's on a server, so what is best?

1) Install Windows Server 2012 essentials & then install the Hyper-V role?


2) Install Windows Server Hyper-V & run Essentials as a VM

I need to set the main server as a DC & DHCP server..so

Can the WS hyper-v be a DC & DHCP server too, then when Essentials running, join the forest created on the Hyper-V?

Thank you
