Trying to get ahead of the game build a virtual environment as I am upgrading from physical to a HyperV Host for all roles.
Servers not here yet, so was going to start building the DC VMs on another server and either use NOT CONNECTED or create an internal Virtual Switch and use this while I build the DC, DNS, DHCP .. VM.
Then when servers are here, move onto the server and after using Converged Fabric for teaming and setting up an External VSwitch on this.
Sound all good, or will I come into problems when building the DC or after I move it.
Trying to get things ahead as I only have the weekend to build.. Which option would you choose?
Many thanks in advance
the VMs will need to have network communication between them, so virtual switch required.
