Hyper-V Hosts not Discovered in Ops Mgr

In this article

    Symptoms

    No Hyper-V hosts appear in the OpsMgr console.

    Cause

    Hyper-V hosts might not be visible in OpsMgr due to discovery issues, SDK connection issues or problems with the OpsMgr agent on Hyper-V hosts.

    Solutions

    Open the Veeam Web UI and check if hosts are displayed on the Hyper-V Servers tab. If no hosts are shown:

    • Check whether there are enough licensed sockets remaining.
    • Click the Update monitored Hosts link. This will force the Veeam Virtualization Extensions Service to update the list of recently discovered hosts.
    • Click the Test OM SDK Connection link to check SDK connection between the Veeam Virtualization Extensions Service and OpsMgr.

    If the SDK connection is unavailable, check whether the System Center Data Access Service is running on the Management Server. Also, make sure that the account used to run the Virtualization Extensions Service has the Operator or Author role assigned in OpsMgr.

    Hyper-V Servers Tab

    • Check that Veeam MP for Hyper-Vs have been imported and discoveries are not disabled.
    • Check that proxy settings are enabled for OpsMgr agents on Hyper-V hosts. For details, see Step 2. Configure OpsMgr Agent Proxy Settings.
    • Restart OpsMgr service Microsoft Monitoring Agent on Hyper-V hosts to force discovery:
      • In OpsMgr 2012 R2, restart Microsoft Monitoring Agent Service
      • In OpsMgr 2012 SP1, restart System Center Management Service
