Setting up new server advice please
After half term I'll be setting up a new server at one of my primary schools. It's a smallish school with about 220 pupils, 85 desktops and 82GB of data stored on the old server.
It will be the only DC and run everything after the migration so file, print, sims, exchange and av. I'm planning to virtualize as much as I can if only for the disaster recovery side of things but I've been told different things by different people on how to configure the server so wanted to ask here.
Plan A was to make the host the DC and file server and virtualize the separate roles into their own machines. I'm using datacentre so no problem on licencing.
Plan B is to make the host standalone and virtualize the DC as well as a separate machine.
I know Microsoft says not to run anything on a virtual host other than hyper-v so that backs up plan B but I would like to get other peoples thoughts on this please.
