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 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. If you move VMs between hosts in the cluster, you will not have to re-configure 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 under the SCVMM.

Adding Microsoft Hyper-V ServersImportant!

Make sure that you do not add Hyper-V hosts or clusters under an SCVMM server if this SCVMM server is already added to Veeam Backup & Replication.

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 have added a new Hyper-V host to a cluster that is under an SCVMM server in your backup infrastructure, and plan to access this Hyper-V host in the Veeam Backup & Replication console, you must re-run the New Hyper-V Server wizard for the SCVMM server.
