Anyone try to take a passthrough HDD in a VM and add it to a non-VM version of WHS2011? Seems like it should work fine, given you can easily reinstall WHS2011 withought loosing data that is on a separate HDD. Any thoughts?

Are you speaking of a physical drive you have passed thru?

The only quirk you should see will be on the user accounts and associated permissions as these are SID based and not assigned via a common user name. Simple enough to take ownership of the folders/files if needed.

Cool. I was curious in case I decided to blow away the VM approach and go direct to WHS2011 as the host. Not sure if I like running it as a VM. Still doing a lot of playing while my v1 server is still running. I guess I have a lot of time to decide how I want it.
