Adding the Hyper-V Role to a server


Recommended Posts

Can someone clear this up for me please,




Yes, it is true, and I'm not talking about the standalone Hyper-V. When you install the Hyper-V role the host OS becomes a VM itself. It still looks like it's a standard Windows host, but the OS becomes a VM and resides in a Parent Partition. See here:


Therefore, attaching your storage drives to the host machine is the same as attaching them to a guest VM - it all goes through the Hyper-V hypervisor.



So, according to this guy my 2012 install is now a VM, because when I added the role, it virtualised the host install...


Doesn't sound right to me.
