I am deploying new Dell server that has custom software application that requires Microsoft SQL server. However the new SQL 2016 software during the install says I should not install 2016 SQL on a Primary Domain Controller which has not ever been a problem in the past Microsoft server OS's.
So I think my options are to purchase another workstation and install the SQL on that workstation and make it a member of the 2012 R2 domain.
Should I install Hyper-V and use the two Windows 2012 R2 licensees with one Hyper-V server as the PDC and the second Hyper-V server as the SQL server? I really do not feel comfortable using Hyper-V in a production enviroment where critical company business is be being done everyday. Also backups for Hyper-V are no as easy as Windows 2012 R2 as they are built into the OS and very easy to manage.
New deployment is the following:
Brand new Dell server
Windows 2012 R2 Standard software
SQL 2016 standard software
