Good evening experts,
I am about to get back into networking with a new job on Monday and I want to bone up on a few technologies. I am asking what is the best way to perform a test installation of windows server 2012 R2. I want to put on the installation:
1. Active Directory
4. Exchange 2013
Would my best option be simply to install Vmware on my laptop, which has 8 gigs of ram and a terrabyte hardrive. It is an inspiron I7 intel core machine. Keep in mind this is only for training purposes.
If Vmware is the way to go , please recommend which version should I use. If you recommend another virtual software , please let me know what it is.
I hope I have made my needs clear. Thank you for your anticipated responses
