Hyper-v vs Domain Services

Server 2012

Pretty sure I had the Hyper-v role installed on my server.

Last night I installed the Active Directory Services role. On reboot, neither role is installed. Not sure what happened, but maybe someone can comment.


What is the preferred arrangement:

1. Hyper-v and DC running on same local host

2. Hyper-v with DC running on VM

3. Separate DC on designated physical server

4. Other best practice

My intention is to use the hyper-v manager server for virtual environments;  to help with application development on different server environments. I want a Domain Controller because I need a practice environment for testing domain services.
