You could add the hyper-v role (as only role) to host, then stand up two virtual machines as domain controllers for the different domains.

Hi,

On a single physical server , we can't do this.
If you want to create a new domain , you need another server.
Or you can create 2 hyper-v on the server and make them as DC for different domains as DSPatric said.
Best Regards,
