Failed to connect to host

Veeam Logoby j.turansky » Mon Nov 16, 2015 7:23 am

Hi, I am having trouble with adding hyper-v server to Veeam. I always get meesage:

Invalid namespace
Possible reasons:
1.invalid credentials
2.Specified host in bot a Hyper-V server.

When I try to add this server as a classic Microsoft Windows server it works, so i suppose the credentials are correct.

The virtual server is Windows Server 2008 R2 and the server with veeam is Windows 2012 R2.

Thx for any advice

Hi j.turansky,
Check if you have Hyper-V role enabled on the host and if you add it a host, not cluster or SCVMM.

What locale do you have configured on this Hyper-v host?
