Adding Microsoft Hyper-V Servers

You must add to the backup infrastructure Microsoft Hyper-V hosts on which VMs you plan to work with are located.

You can connect standalone Microsoft Hyper-V hosts, Microsoft Hyper-V clusters or SCVMM servers. If a Microsoft Hyper-V host is added to a cluster, it is recommended that you add to the backup infrastructure a cluster, not a standalone Microsoft Hyper-V host. Connecting clusters and SCVMM instead of standalone Microsoft Hyper-V hosts provides more flexibility at work.

Before adding a Microsoft Hyper-V server, check prerequisites. Then use the New Hyper-V Server wizard to add the server.

  1. Launch the New Hyper-V Server wizard
  2. Specify a server name or address
  3. Choose a server type
  4. Specify credentials
  5. Review components
  6. Finish working with the wizard
  7. Specify settings for connected volumes
