Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 4
User Guide for Microsoft Hyper-V

Adding Microsoft Hyper-V Servers

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 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

Adding Microsoft Hyper-V Servers Note:

If you added a new Hyper-V host to a cluster that is managed by an SCVMM server and this SCVMM server is already added to the backup infrastructure, Veeam Backup & Replication may not display the Hyper-V host in the list of managed servers. To make the Hyper-V host accessible from the Veeam Backup & Replication console, right-click the SCVMM server, select Properties and go through the steps of the Edit Hyper-V Server wizard.
