Advice Setting Up Hyper V Enviroment
Posted on 2014-10-08
Hi All we have a Brand Shiny New Server, and we would like to Virtualize our Environment.
Currently out Network Consists of 1 x SBS 2003 Server using Exchange, 1 x Server we Access Through Terminal Services
We have purchased a Dell PowerEdge R520 From Dell which consists of 2 x 300GB SAS Drives (Mirrored)
And 4 x 1.2TB SAS Drives (Raid 5)
The New server has Server 2012 Standard R2, and I was going to install Hyper v and run Exchange in a Virtual Environment as well as out TS Server, I was going to use the Main Dell (Host) as the DC
Can any Recommend any setup Configurations or Best Practices in setting this up, or can see any Possible implications with this.
Would I have to do a clean install, I assume there would be no migration Options from SBS 2003 to 2012 etc
