win 2016 hyper-v join to domain

I have 2 windows 2016 hyper-v hosts in a workgroup and I plan to join those 2 hosts to domain.
Hosts have 2 DCs(2008r2) as a guests VMs and couple other member servers.
Reading this article I dont expect problems running DCs on domain joined hosts
Should I expect any problem if I join hyper-v hosts to domain?
I plan to shutdown guests VMs and join host(s) to domain and than power on guest VMs.

Some of the resiliency for domain controllers in a virtual machine were not introduced until 2012.  If both hosts are down simultaneously, you could have issues with the DCs when they come back up.  It's not an ideal configuration.  A physical DC is preferred in such a scenario.  If you upgrade your DCs to 2012 or higher, you'll be in a better situation.
