2012 Domain Controller is not a Hyper-V or Cluster Node

Good Morning,

This is not so much of a blog post as a quick note to encourage all to keep a Physical DC.  This was a much needed article to clarify what we know.  Certainly dont  use your DC as a fail over cluster node. Microsoft will no be supporting this in Server 2012.  You probably don’t want your parent partition as the DC in your hyper-v box either. You can virtualize the DC in 2012 but please have a physical DC as well. Happy New year!
