Case ID 00175422-Unable to create Hyper-v replication job

Veeam Logoby Carolyn » Thu Jan 24, 2013 1:01 am

I'm trying to create a hyper-v vm replication job. The source Hyper-v host is a Windows Server 2012 Hyper-v cluster. The virtual machines running on the cluster are Windows Server 2008 R2 servers. When I try to create a Veeam replication job I get the following error: "VM [vmname] is incompatible with host [hostname]. Specify Windows Server 2012 or Hyper-v 2012 host as the target for replication."

The target Hyper-v host in the disaster recovery site is running Windows Server 2008 R2. Does the source Hyper-v host and the target Hyper-v host have to be the same version of Windows server or is there a workaround for this error?

Thank you.

Carolyn, replication from Hyper-V 2012 down to Hyper-V 2008R2 is not supported by Veeam B&R (this is covered in the user guide).
