HyperV Clustering Question

Hi Experts,

I've been searching the internet all day long about whether or not a Hyper-V cluster needs its own domain. And people are saying different things about this subject.

I've gotta rebuild the server environment in the company I work for. I have Windows Server 2012 R2 licenses and a bunch of hardware, so I can do pretty much what I want.

My idea is to build up a physical domain controller, and add my 3 HyperV host machines to this domain. Then build the production domain on the HyperV hosts, using all VM's except for a second domain controller for the production domain.

I'd like to hear your ideas about this. So plz share your opinion on this topic.....

Failover clustering needs a domain. Not necessarily "its own" domain, which implies exclusivity. And, in fact, I would not recommend multiple domains unless absolutely necessary. Administratively this becomes a small nightmare.
