I have a new empty server and a licenced copy of Windows 2016 Std Server.
I want to build two virtual servers. I have downloaded and installed Hyper-V 2016 standalone and now I have a non-GUI interface with basic options for domain, network etc. but of course, no GUI to install VMs. Is the standalone version the way to go or is it unnecessary for what I'm trying to do. It seems a bit industrial just for two VMs.
I've seen Internet videos talking about using Hyper-V in Windows 2016 rather than using Hyper-V standalone but doesn't that just give me a Windows 2016 server with a Windows 2016 server inside it? Maybe I'm missing the point.
