HyperV v7 MP and VMware 6.5 MP

Veeam Logoby jim@jankowskinet.com » Sun Aug 31, 2014 10:35 pm

We are currently using the 6.5 version of the VMware MP with SCOM 2012 R2. We would like to install and use the new Hyper-V MP included with Veeam Management Pack v7 for System Center.

Can we simply upgrade the Virtualization Extensions Service and UI to v7 and then license/run both the Hyper-V v7 MP and VMware 6.5 MP together in the same SCOM management group?

If so, is there an upgrade guide that covers this scenario?

Hi JJ,

Such an upgrade is possible with one requirement though - your Virtualization Extensions Service should be installed on a Management Server (because this is a requirement for Hyper-V support). If VES is on the Management Server, you can upgrade it to v7, then you'll need to upgrade collectors too (there is a way to enable Collector Auto-deployment during the upgrade, so that you don't need to upgrade them manually). Then import updated MPs and Hyper-V MPs.

If you have a license with both VMware and Hyper-V sockets, VES will work in hybrid mode (Hyper-v and vSphere) and you'll be able to configure data collection for both hypervisors in the same UI.

Additional information (including a way to enable collector auto-deployment during upgrade) can be found in the Installation Guide on the resources page: https://www.veeam.com/management-pack-s ... urces.html

Let me know if you have any other questions.
