Good day,

I need to create Windows 2008 R2 Server VM on a Hyper-V cluster with high availability. I then need to install SQL 2008 R2 on this server. I was wondering if someone can provide me an installation guide installing SQL on a VM.

I want to make sure I do not have performance issues.

Thanks.

I use pretty much nothing but VMs at my office. There's no special magic or ritual you need to go through to install SQL Server on a virtual machine. It's as routine as installing it on any machine. What you need to do is make sure the VM has enough resources allocated (RAM, CPU cores, disk space). The great thing about a VM is that you can always allocate more resources later on if you need to. The one exception to this is you should make sure before you install that you have enough CPU cores allocated to the VM as are required to fulfill your license. SQL Core licensing always comes in pairs so 2 cores, 4, 6, 8, etc...
