Scenario: I have a newly deployed Server 2012 R2 Standard Server running Hyper-V. The VM is a 2012 R2 Standard Primary Domain Controller and File Server. I will be adding a second Hyper-V Host Server with an identical configuration and will be a backup Server.
My Question: Seeing as the first Server is already in production, is it possible to configure a Failover Cluster? Would I be better off configuring it as a Backup Domain Controller? I would be much happier with a Failover Cluster.
I've never configured a Cluster and will be winging it. I plan to have a backup of both of the Hyper-V Host Servers prior to getting started. Any advise is welcome. A rundown of the process would be appreciated, as well.
Thanks in advance!
