You only need to worry about a few things when you’re deciding to virtualize a service. But what happens when Active Directory is the target service? You know that you get the best security by joining your Hyper-V host to the domain, but doesn’t that make these two critical roles interdependent? Many people refer to that conundrum as Hyper-V’s “chicken and egg” problem. Fortunately, no such problem actually exists. You can easily and safely join your Hyper-V host to a domain even if it hosts the only domain controller. This video will introduce the concerns around domain controller virtualization. It will then demonstrate a complete virtualized domain controller deployment. You’ll see what happens when things don’t work correctly and how to handle it.
