  • Here's a great article to start with when you start considering virtualizing you AD infrastructure.

    For my lab environments, I will often create two domain controllers as VMs.  If I have a clustered lab, I will make sure that the DCs are configured on local storage - not shared storage.  The above article explains the issues with this.  For production, unless it was a very small environment, I would try to keep my DCs someplace else.

  • Hi!

    The official recommendation is to have one DC with all important roles on a physical server, and not installed at host level on a Hyper-V server.

    Although practictally, since you don't seem to have any Hyper-V clusters, you can have one virtual DC on each host. Do not enable additional roles running besides Hyper-V, that is generally bad-practice performance-wise.
