Microsoft Hyper-V 2016 Configuration Advice

Post by richardlowe » Aug 15, 2018 12:43 pm

I'm installing new physical and virtual servers on a remote site, with Veeam Backup and Replication 9.5 to provide backups of the VM's. I would like some advice on an optimum Veeam configuration. The server config is:

Physical Host 1 - HPE Proliant server running Microsoft Hyper-V 2016 OS
The physical host has two VM's - a 2012 R2 domain controller and a 2012 R2 application server
Hyper-V replication replicates these VM's to Physical Host 2

Physical Host 2 - HPE Proliant server running Microsoft Hyper-V 2016 OS
It receives the Hyper-V replicas from Physical Host 1

Question 1: Can I install Veeam Backup and Replication 9.5 on Physical Host 2 and access it using Veeam Remote Console from a local computer? Or does Veeam Backup and Replication require an OS with a GUI? I've seen posts suggesting support for Windows Core installations will be in Veeam 9.5 Update 4 but the current version won't install on Core.

Question 2: if Veeam Backup and Replication 9.5 has to be installed on a GUI, I can install a new VM on Physical Host 2 and install Veeam there. Is there anything inherently "wrong" with installing it on a VM? I would be backing up the Veeam Database to an external NAS so its kept safe in event of disaster.

Hi Richard,

1. That's unsupported scenario for the current version of the product.
2. There is nothing wrong with installing Virtual Backup Server. Thanks!
