Adding Microsoft Hyper-V Servers

In this article

    You must add to the backup infrastructure Microsoft Hyper-V hosts that you plan to use as source and target for backup, replication and other activities.

    You can connect standalone Hyper-V hosts, Hyper-V clusters or SCVMM servers. If a Hyper-V host is added to a cluster, it is recommended that you add to the backup infrastructure a cluster, not a standalone Hyper-V host. If you move VMs between hosts in the cluster, you will not have to reconfigure jobs in Veeam Backup & Replication. Veeam Backup & Replication will automatically locate migrated VMs and continue processing them as usual.

    Note that it is not necessary to add SCVMM servers to Veeam Backup & Replication — you can add directly Hyper-V hosts or clusters managed by SCVMM.

    Before you add 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

    Adding Microsoft Hyper-V Servers Note:

    If you add a Hyper-V host to a cluster that is already added to your backup infrastructure, Veeam Backup & Replication may not display this Hyper-V host in the list of managed servers. To display the Hyper-V host and make it accessible from the Veeam Backup & Replication console, do the following:

    • If the Hyper-V host is added to a cluster that is managed by SCVMM, right-click the SCVMM server, select Properties and go through the steps of the Edit Hyper-V Server wizard.
    • If the Hyper-V host is added to a cluster that is not managed by SCVMM, right-click the cluster and select Rescan.

    To ensure that all Veeam Backup & Replication components on the Hyper-V host are up to date, right-click the Hyper-V host, select Properties and go through the steps of the Edit Hyper-V Server wizard.

    I want to report a typo

    There is a misspelling right here:

     

    I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
