    Windows Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 with SBS 2008 running as guest


    Hi All,

    I am interested in running Windows Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 with SBS
    2008 premium running as guest. Is this possible? From what I
    gather...yes.

    So on my test box, I installed Windows Hyper-V Server 2008 R2...and on
    the config screen, option 1 is Domain/Workgroup. Question is, do I
    just keep Hyper-V as a WORKGROUP until after I add the SBS 2008
    premium software as a guest? And after I add the SBS 2008 premium
    software as a guest, do I join Hyper-V to the SBS domain?

    Very confused here...or not even sure if this is possible or will
    cause stability issues. Anyone's insight to this configuration, as
    well as other Hyper-V with SBS 2008 premium best practices would be
    greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Leave the Hyper-V host in a workgroup, do not make it a DC nor join it to
    the SBS 08 domain.

    There is an entire section in the SBS 2008 Technet library on using Hyper-V
    with SBS 2008.
