  • Hi Sam,

    As Raynald said, you don't need Hyper-V role for VMM 2012 installation, especially if you install VMM 2012 on virtual machine. If you install VMM on physical server and you want to use this server as a host you need to install Hyper-V role on that physical server.

    NOTE: Hyper-V role cannot be installed on the virtual machine!
