Before you add a Microsoft Hyper-V server to the backup infrastructure, check the following prerequisites:
- File and printer sharing must be enabled in network connection settings of the added Microsoft Hyper-V host. On every connected Microsoft Hyper-V host, Veeam Backup Free Edition deploys a set of components:
- Veeam Installer Service
- Veeam Data Mover Service
- Veeam Hyper-V Integration Service
If file and printer sharing is not enabled on the host, Veeam Backup Free Edition will fail to deploy these components.
- [For SCVMM] SCVMM Admin UI must be installed on the backup server. Otherwise, you will not be able to add SCVMM servers to the backup infrastructure.
- Make sure that the NETBIOS name of the Microsoft Hyper-V Server is successfully resolved.
