troubleshooting Question

New to using HYPER-V Join domain yes or no

We have been using ESXI free version for most installs as typically they are a Single Host with 1 or 2 Virtual Servers.

We want to use Veeam for backup so we need to move to HYPER-V for our hypervisor, Documentation indicates we should join Host to the domain, however my old school logic says that if it is Joined to a Domain that does not exist (Hyper-V must boot for the VM Domain Controller to start) so if there is an issue with the Server then is there going to be a problem accessing the HYPER-V Host?

Thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated
