SCVMM on a host RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would like to try out SCVMM.

    At the moment i have two hyper-v hosts and I don't have a seperate machine to install SCVMM. Can I install it directly on one of the hosts, or I can install it on a virtual machine inside the host (both hosts are in one hyper-v failover cluster).

    It is a lab solution (not production)

  • Hello,

    Please don't install the SCVMM server  on the Hyper-V host directly. You can install the SCVMM server and domain controller in the VMs. 

    After installation, you can add the hyper-v hosts/cluster into the VMM for management. Please refer to the installation guide by clicking the following link.
