Setting up a new Hyper V environment replacing SBS 2011
I have the opportunity to do a full setup of Windows 2019 server with Exchange 2019 to replace an aging SBS 2011.
I will need a new hardware platform and look for suggestions on the best practices:
1) Should the host OS be on an SSD rather than SAS 15K ? (it will be on a RAID 1 anyway and the Hyper V VMs will be on a RAID 5 or 10 depending on suggestions))
2) Should Active directory be on a VM or a physical machine ?
3) 2 or 3 VMs planned: 1 for Exchange, one for File and print sharing and may be another one for A/D depending on suggestions to 2)
