Regarding the number 1 issue, what you mean is I should put the stuff on a SAN in case the server dies, I just reinstall another Hyper-V hypvervisor server and attach to it?
About number 2, I'm not sure if I got it. Can I remote into the Hyper-V hypervisor? I didn't think it had any kinds of RDP? or do you mean I can connect to it by PowerShell?
