Can I virtualise my only DC?
I have Primary schools with just one physical DC. The server normally runs AD, DHCP, DNS, print server. Sometimes they also run WSUS and even occasionally a SIMS server too.
I would like to start virtualising - with new hardware. I'm concerend that many of my schools will be on a budget and not sure if they'd benefit from virtual servers. My questions would be
1. Is it worth Virtualising my only DC?
2. Is it recommended?
3. Can I use some large capacity internal drives for storage between all VM's?
The older server could stay as a secondary DC if necessary but isn't good enough to run VM's on really.
I did look at this thread: http://www.edugeek.net/forums/thin-c...n-servers.html but not sure it all applies to my primary schools.
