Virtualising 2012r2 Essentials


Recommended Posts


I have my Gen8 now running 2012r2, with just Hyper-V on it, I have my torrent and plex servers running and for now they are just using network shares directly from the Gen8.


Plan is to spin a VM up with Essentials on it and setup dns/dhcp, maybe a proxy if I can be bothered.

Share the data from the Essentials VM, use that to do client backups, user rights and so on.


So far I just have the 3 4tb drives in the server with all of my data on shared directly, but, if I put that on Essentials whats the best way to do it, I have Drivepool and Scanner but thinking about different ways to sort the pools out...
