I want to create a Windows Server guest and turn it into a DC for a new domain. Is there a way I can get the host OS to join the domain? I’ve successfully joined the domain before but then, of course, was unable to log on to the domain upon successful restart (as the server was not running).
I would use VMware server, because it lets me run guest OS’s as services without having to log on, but of course VMware Server won’t work with my host OS (Vista x64 Ultimate).
Any suggestions (besides “buy a server, dumbass”)?
