hello i was experimenting with server 2012 r2 and then i heard about windows server 2019 insider. so im about to install it on one of my computers however, i have some questions on the setup.

 

 

number 1a. what roles can be installed on  a single server instance or rather what should/shouldnt be installed on .

 

number 1b. can rds roles be installed on the same server that is the domain controller (i have heard conflicting answers on this)

number 1c. what are the minimum roles for r.d.s and active directory.

 

 

secondly since i do not have the money for a proper server/lab setup i can only make small changes and buy cheap outdated/ancient equipment. heres what i have to work with.
