    I just listened to the podcast three times. It's simply a mess because you (Dave McKay) keep saying Essentials When you mean Server and Server when you mean essentials. In the end nobody knows what you are talking about and if you can in fact run Hyper V on Essentials. Next time you try to talk about similar named products write out each with the relevant capabilities of each then try not to keep misquoting one for the other.

      Thanks for your feedback Susan. I have yet to listen back but I apologize if it seemed messy to you. I didn't realize I fumbled it. Honestly, it is messy. In my situation, Essentials Role is running on Server 2012 R2. I also run the Hyper-V role but by your comments you already realize that Hyper-V runs on Server 2012. You can in fact run Hyper-V on Essentials if that is what you are asking. I thought it was clear in my questioning to Drashna that you can do that. His answer was very concise in what you can run inside that VM. I also thought it was clear that you could run other VM's on Essentials outside of it's licensing agreement. Thanks for listening regardless. I'll mention it in the next show.
