so I configured my home server to run Server 2012, I had a few questions before I get to far down this road. if I set up my home to use AD and my server takes a dump, how hard will it be to access the files and what not, will it just be a matter of starting up a server trial vm in my copy of workstation on my desk top and attaching the storage and taking ownership? or would it be even easier then that. or might I totaly lock my self out of my own data? I am really new to using AD. secondly I wanted to know if I could run a hyper-v VM of pfsense on my server? maybe vmware player would be better? it is a supermicro atom d510 with 4gb ram, pfsense will only be used for 4-8 devices and the server has dual intel nics? I am running storage spaces so there is some cpu overhead, but I figure a 32 bit copy of pfsense should hardly effect my overhead... ( vm will be stored on a mostly dedicated drive not in any storage pool) Thanks for any info.
