Upgrading Hyper-V intergrations (9.5 u4a)

Post by leo.white » Apr 09, 2019 6:56 pm

I upgraded my Veeam environment last week to the newest version. Only issue i have is veeam says my Main backup server is out of date on the hyper-v integrations. Only problem is the main backup server is a virtual machine. So it will not let me update that component or let me remove that component. Anyone else have this issue?

Error it throws "Failed to upgrade host components. Error:'This server is not a hyper-v host'

One thing you can do is run the hyper-v integrations component manually on that server. Please find VeeamHvIntegration.msi and VeeamTransport.msi in C:\Program Files\Veeam\Backup and Replication\Backup\Packages on your backup server and run those. (Start with the Integration.msi first before you do Transport and see if the second one is still necessary. Not sure about that to be honest)

Thanks
Mike

Hi Leo, did you manage to solve the problem? We are a reseller using an NFR for testing so we cannot open a ticket with the support...

Yes, same error: how can I install the HyperV integration since the software is installed onto a virtual machine?

I have reviewed OP's case number, the solution was to remove an internal ID (unique in each installation) via SQL script of the backup component reporting this problem. VeeamHvIntegration.msi should not and cannot be installed in a VM, that's why you see this error. Since you cannot open a support ticket, then I'm afraid a complete re-install is a way to go.

I'd love to share it, but it is not possible to do over forums since the solution requires reviewing the database of your Veeam B&R server. Based on the results, someone has to write a correct SQL script to clean up duplicated/wrong IDs. Copy-pasting the script from OP's case would not help as each script is unique to every Veeam B&R server.

So for everyone who is looking for a solution. Following did the trick for me.

First of all, manually update all correctly recognized components, like vPowerNFS.

Then open a SQL Server Management Studio, connecting to the Veeam database and open up the table "HostComponents" in edit mode. Searching for the wrong component - most likely this is the one with a lower version number and something like "HvIntegration" under options column - and deleting the entire row.
