To add Hyper-V servers to the product, follow the steps below:

  1. In the main menu, click Settings.



  2. Go to the Inventory tab and click Add New.
  3. Click Microsoft Hyper-V host or cluster in the dialog that opens.
  4. Fill out the fields as follows:
    • Display name: Enter a name for the host that will be displayed in the inventory
    • Type: Select whether you want to add a standalone Hyper-V server or a cluster.

      For Hyper-V Failover Clusters, it's enough to add any cluster member by an IP address or domain name. The list of cluster members will be retrieved automatically.

    • Hostname or IP: Specify the hostname or IP address of the Hyper-V server. 
    • Username and Password: Specify the credentials of the Hyper-V server that you want to add to the inventory.

      The credentials you specify should have full administrative privileges to the Hyper-V server

    • WS MAN port: Specify the port number for WS MAN.

  5. Click Add.

After the process has completed successfully, you can exit Settings and create jobs with the newly discovered VMs.

Notes

  • When adding a new Hyper-V server to the inventory, NAKIVO Backup & Replication will automatically install the Transporter service onto the server. This service will be used to read data from source VMs during backup and replication.
  • Multiple Directors are not supported. If you add the same Hyper-V host to the inventory of an additional NAKIVO Backup & Replication instance, Transporter installation may fail. 
  • No labels
