Veeam 9.5 adding server Hyper-V on Windows 10 error

Post by Eagleknight » Apr 01, 2017 4:11 am

I was running Veeam One Free 9.0 and didn't have any issues. I redid my Windows 10 Pro server that I have a few Hyper-V VM's on and now when I installed 9.5 and went to add a server I get an error. Veeam One Monitor could not connect to "server". Hyper-V role is not enabled on the server specified. Any ideas? I created a test admin account to make sure credentials were working. I could not locate a 9.0 free download anymore.

Hello and welcome to the community!
Windows 10 is not officially supported as a hypervisor.
Did you run Veeam ONE v9 with Windows 10 with no issues?

While it isn't supported you might be able to get it working by installing the correct Hyper-V role via Powershell as explained here.

Yes, I had 9.0 working fine on Windows 10. Although it was awhile ago and don't remember if I ran into issues or not. It worked like a charm once up and running. I haven't had time to try that link yet. That link describe loading Hyper-V on a virtual machine, but you are saying run the same command on my host where Hyper-V is already configured?

Just something I noticed, the datasheet doesn't list Windows 10, but the help area in the requirement section has Windows 10 listed. Is it it referring to the monitor software?

Veeam One can be installed on Windows 10 as stated in the helpcenter. However you are adding the Hyper-V guest which is also Windows 10 (or am I mistaken?). If so try running the powershell command on the Windows 10 Hyper-V server as Veeam One looks for a specific role that might be missing.

Correct, Veeam ONE software can be installed on Win 10, but Windows 10 is not supported as hypervisor.
Have you tried Niels` PS script?

Unfortunately on Windows 10, the only part of the script that seems to work is

Code: Select all

Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature –Online -FeatureName Microsoft-Hyper-V –All -NoRestart 
All the subsequent Install-WindowsFeature commands don't work ... error:
PS C:\Windows\system32> Install-WindowsFeature RSAT-Hyper-V-Tools -IncludeAllSubFeature
Install-WindowsFeature : The target of the specified cmdlet cannot be a Windows client-based operating system.
At line:1 char:1
+ Install-WindowsFeature RSAT-Hyper-V-Tools -IncludeAllSubFeature
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+ CategoryInfo : DeviceError: (localhost:String) [Install-WindowsFeature], Exception
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : WindowsClient_NotSupported,Microsoft.Windows.ServerManager.Commands.AddWindowsFeatureCommand
I did install RSAT (1803) on the host machine, but no luck.... :(

It's unfortunate because we plan on hosting our VMs on Windows 10, or Hyper-V Server 2019 eventually and were hoping to use Veeam to manage them.

Hyper-V Server 2019 is to be supported in the next Veeam ONE release.
Talking about Windows 10, do you use Veeam Backup & Replication to protect your VMs?

This is good news. Any ETA on the release? What about support for the Hyper-V role on Windows 10 Pro?

All my VMs are hosted on Windows 10 Hyper-V ... and I can't add those hosts to Veeam 9.5 as I mentioned in my post above.

Next Veeam ONE release is to be released later this year.
Microsoft has some difficulties with Windows Server 2019, but I believe they will fix it soon.
What about support for the Hyper-V role on Windows 10 Pro?
You cannot backup and monitor VMs running on Windows 10 Pro, however you can restore VMs there with Veeam Backup&Replication.
