Running WHS on Virtual machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • Up to now, Ive been running WHS alone. However, as WHS doesnt support several programes and such - Im thinking of installing Win 7 and run WHS on a virtual drive.
    Is this recommended? Any pros/cons?

  • Hi,
    it is not supported, but you can do it.
    But consider two recommendations:
    Use a software, which runs as a service in background and allows you to keep the VM running also without having to start it manually.
    The data disks (if you plan serious use of WHS) should be physical and no virtual volumes.
