We are new to installing Virtual servers.
Can someone please explain the best practice on how we should install a new server to run 1 or 2 virtual servers please, when used for Smal businesses - upto 40 - 50 users etc?
Eg do we install the standard local copy of Windows 2012 R2 onto the physical box first?? (as you would in previous years before virtual servers came about) - then once we have done this do we need to then install Hyper V role and create our virtual servers from there? Or is there a better way to do this?
Also if the phyiscal server had Windows 2012 installed running 2 virtual servers. If the physical server OS corrupted then how would we go about restoring the virtual servers
