VEEAM Backup and Replication 8.0 has Problems to detect a Windows 10 Hyper-V Host. The Errors are:

failed to create a persistent Connection to ADMIN$ share Folder on host <ip>
failed to install Service [Veeam Deploymnet Service] was not installed on the host [ip]

Installation was without Errors, the credentials for the Hyper V Host are correct.

Windows 10 is not supported as a platform for B&R 8.0. That you for letting us know what happens when you try anyway; I'm glad to know that we merely fail to install any services instead of doing something more damaging to the Hyper-V host.

No exact ETA, but probably in 6 to 8 weeks.

Veeam VP Anton Gostev also mentioned it in his weekly digest.
Gostev wrote:Windows 10 will be supported in Veeam Endpoint Backup starting from version 1.1 (August), and in Veeam Backup & Replication 8.0 starting from Update 3 (September).
It may happen a bit earlier, though.
Just curious what was your motivation to update your system right after the Windows 10 release?
Thanks!

I have been a member of the insider program and KNOW therefore that the OS is stable and all my applications run on it, except VEEAM

Double-checked plans with developers, upcoming Update 3 should support backup of VMs running Windows 10 OS, as well as use machines running Win10 as backup proxy and repository.
Thanks!

Please note that we do NOT support Hyper-V on non-server OS at all, so support for Windows 10 Hyper-V is NOT coming with the Update 3. Here is the existing discussion > Windows 8 Hyper-V

Hi,

I'm not that familiar with Hyper-V yet, but from what I've seen a VM from a standalone hyper-v server can be imported into a hyper-v running on a desktop OS.

I'd just like to make sure: would it be possible to use a Hyper-V on Windows 10 to power up a VM backed up via VB&R?

If the client had only 1 physical server running Hyper-V, it would be great -in case of a hardware failure- to be able to run a backed up VM on a desktop os hyper-v until the "proper" hyper-v host is repaired.

Thank you!

It won't be possible. Thanks.

Hmmm... but why if hyperv vms generally can be powered up on a desktop os hyperv?

I'm not asking to integrate a Windows 10 hyperv into veeam (in case there's a misunderstanding).

If I export the vm files from a veeam backup they cannot be used to power up that vm on a win10 hyperv?


This is only of interest for a very small deployment to have an option in case of a disaster when the 1 and only server goes down.

To the best of my knowledge it won't be possible due to the differences in Hyper-V implementations. And we generally do not support such scenario.

Though, of course there is nothing preventing you from testing it yourself and seeing the results.

Thanks.

[MERGED] Add Win10 Host for Hyper-V Not Possible??

Post by ccclapp » Jul 11, 2017 10:23 pm

I am testing B&R and Agents for our small company with two locations. I would like to test Instant Recovery at a home office location on a Win 10 PC to restore Agent backed up PCs. I have enabled Hyper-V and can run VMs on the Win 10 PC. However it appears that B&R will not allow a Win 10 host to be added (tech support believes one must use a Server OS on the host for B&R to accept the host). I am asking here in case anyone has been able to make this work.

Thanks!

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

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

Hello,

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.

[MERGED] Community Edition on Windows 10 (1809) Hyper-V Role?

Post by mkarl » Feb 09, 2019 8:44 am

Hello there,

i've installed a fresh Windows 10 Pro 1809 with Hyper-V enabled.
On this HV-Host i put the B&R 9.5u4 in Community-Mode.
Bound successfully to my Synology-Repo via SMB and now i want to configure a job and added the machine itself (localhost) as a managed server with no errors.
But when i try to create a new job, i dont see any Host or VMs that i can select for that job.

Is Windows 10 Hyper-V not supported? Have i use a Windows Server OS (2016/2019) to use this community Edition?

Thanks in Advance.

Hello,

Yes, client OS Hyper-V is only supported for instant VM recovery, but not for backing up VMs.

Thank you!
