My Configuration on a Single machine:
Windows Server 2016 HyperV Hypervisor in a Workgroup – with 2 HyperV VM's:
-      VM1 : Windows 2016, AD, DNS
-      VM2: Windows 2016, TSE
About 20 client PC and 5 remote TSE connections

My Question:
The Hypervisor is presently on a "workgroup". I have been suggested to integrate the Hypervisor into the Windows domain of VM1 as a member server.
This should allow the use of Windows Backup on VM1 to a USB drive connected to the Hypervisor

Is this solution technically OK? Should it work?
Is this a valid solution for backup of VM1?
