Veeam B&R CE backup a VMs from win10Pro Hyper-v

Post by Valery Shatunov »

Hello
I'm using some Hyper-v VMs under my Win10Pro for workstation.
Until the last release, the Veeam B&R CE hasn't a Win10 Hyper-v host support and I used the Win Agent backups for this VMs.

But last release has added a Win10 2004 hyper-v support and I tried to use it.

Veeam B&R CE found my 2004 win10pro host as standalone hyper-v server and added it as managed hyper-v server to the backup infrastructure
The hyper-v transport and infrastructure support installed successfully and B&R console got the access to my Win10pro volumes.

Unfortunately, when I tried to create the backup job for virtual machine thru the console, Veeam B&R CE is unable to find nether VMs nor Win10 host in the "add objects" page at all.

So, I have some questions:
Does hyper-v host support for 2004 Win10 hyper-v still not fully functional and shouldn't be used yet.
Or have I to do something special against my Win10Pro settings for full B&R hyper-v host support?

Thank you.

Hello,

Windows 10 Hyper-V is not supported as a source for backups, please refer to this section on our help center for the list of supported platforms.
I believe that you should continue using agent-based backups.

Thanks!

Yes, Windows 10 hyper-v host support was announced only as a part of the Instant VM Recovery feature that can now use this hypervisor for recovering VMs (not for backups). Thanks!
