Looking at setting up Hyper-V server 2008 on new Dell T610 and migrating DC + 2 other VMs on there. I would try before asking but don't have the server as yet, couple of questions spring to mind if I may:
1 - Can you boot clients via iso? With VMWare I could set-up an iso as CD ROM, is this possible with Hyper-V server 2008?
2 - Can I change the physical NIC settings on Hyper-V set-up to match those of my router / Hardware firewall allowing access to internet for host? I need host and all guests to match the current subnet 192.168.45.0 / 255.255.255.0. This would also allow me to store images on network drives.
3 - My DC will be a guest using static IP as it is now on the domain, are all workstations able to still see as usual, I'm guessing it will broadcast as normal?
4 - Does Hyper-V server 2008 have drive space that I can store images/backups on, is that accessible for domain admins, if I need to drop files locally for example?
