Traditionally it has been recommended that the DC's be installed on dedicated servers with no additional roles installed, however with the introduction of RODC i am sure things will change. Is there any recommendation of what all server roles can co-exist on an RODC, e.g. File Services, Print Services, Active Directory Certificate Services, Active Directory Federation Services, Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services, Active Directory Rights Management Services, Application Server, DHCP server, DNS server, Fax Server, Hyper -V, Network Policy and Access Services, Terminal Services, UDDI Service, Web Services, Windows Deployment services.

Also is there is any recommendation on running RODC on VMs?

Hi
Recommend? I don't think that MS will recommend to run a server with more than one role on it.Dedicated servers should perform faster and with less problems than servers with multiple roles.

Can you do it? Yes, of course, but be carefull with the roles that you mix... For instance, Hyper-V role, CAs, WEBs, and others shouldn't be mixed with any other roles...

I hope that the information above helps you.
Have a Nice day.

RODC's were built with the thought that folks at remote sites could run additional applications on them and provide local admin access for them to be maintained.

I don't believe Microsoft would specifiy what in particular to run on an RODC, since they are going to say keep it clean, but there are reference in the documents below about RODC's and LOB's in your enterprise.

There are papers on DC's running on VM's and these should be followed whether it is a WDC or RODC

Hello David,

Why should this change with RODCs? Especially RODC is limited for example
with exchange. See here about supported applications:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc732790(WS.10).aspx

It doesn't matter if you run RODCs on VM or physical, keep in mind about
the supported backup types, which are NOT snapshots, images or file copies
from a DC.

And applications, roles and services always depend on the physical machine
conifugration, doesn't matter if VMs are used or they shoudl run on the physical
machine.

Best regards

Meinolf Weber
