  • I am not so sure what you are aiming at... The setup is pretty much the same....

  • I have used Hyper-V machine to setup AlwaysOn. I created 5 machines: 1 DC, 4 Nodes.

    It was a smooth process. What is the error you are facing?

  • Hi Satish,

    from an Always On point of view the setup is exactly the same.

  • There is no diff  wrt to AlwaysOn. however, there are some limitations about the # of CPUs that the SQL can recongize between physical and virtual servers.
