Hi all,

Just a quick question on a big subject and would like some thoughts...

I have a server I plan to use as a basic Hyper-V host and I don't know how many virtual processors to allocate across the VM's

The Host has two XEON 8 Core Hyperthreaded CPU's and plenty of RAM, I would like to know how many vCPU's that equates to roughly

I plan to run two Exchange servers in a DAG and would like recommendations for how many to allocate each of them? There will also be a number of Server 2016 and 2012R2 machines running various small loads and some Windows 7 and 10 clients.

I have read all sorts of conflicting answers and I'm unsure of what to do.

Thanks for reading and participating in this question.
