Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5
Evaluator's Guide for Microsoft Hyper-V

Connecting Virtual Infrastructure Servers

In the Veeam Backup & Replication console, connect virtual infrastructure servers to the backup server.

You can connect standalone Hyper-V hosts, Hyper-V clusters or SCVMM servers. If a Hyper-V host is a part of a cluster or SCVMM hierarchy, it is recommended to connect a cluster to Veeam Backup & Replication, not a host itself.

  1. Run Veeam Backup & Replication: from the Start menu, select Programs > Veeam > Veeam Backup & Replication.
  2. In the authentication window, click Connect.
  3. In the inventory pane of the Backup Infrastructure view, right-click the Managed servers node and select Add Server.
