I'm looking to setup a small startup business (8 staff) which has bought two servers. They want an Active Directory setup (although they're not sure what benefit they get from this). They also want one server to be a file server and the other to be for some dedicated document management / cad /3d drawing server software.
My experience is close to none on windows server setup, but i've heard that its best to not have an AD server also running hyperV. Does this mean the AD server should only function as an AD server or could it act as file server as well ?(which is what they want)
Any pointers to useful resouces also appreciated, they already have cloud email, so they dont need exchange or anything fancy. Are there any important considerations for a basic AD setup that i should be aware of?
