[MERGED] VBR backups of Hyper-V VMs on a Windows 10 Pro host

Post by savanozian » Oct 24, 2017 6:28 pm


To the Veeam Dev team: Will Veeam be adding the ability within VBR to backup Hyper-V VMs on a **Windows 10 Pro host** with the Hyper-V role installed? Currently it requires the Veeam Agent for Windows, but will Win10 hosts eventually be supported in VBR?

To the Veeam community: Are there many others out there running Hyper-V on Win10 Pro, say in a lab environment?

Hi Stephan, currently there are no short-term plans to add support for Hyper-V role running on the Windows 10 OS. Thanks for your feedback though.

As Windows 10 isn't supported as a Hypervisor you can only use Veeam agent and directly backup from inside the VM.
