When trying to add a Hyper-V host, you receive the error "Unable to connect via WMI. User Credentials cannot be used for local connections."
Not all of the prerequisites have been installed when using Veeam Backup & Replication.
Before adding Hyper-V servers, check the following prerequisites:
- Make sure the SCVMM Admin UI is installed on the Veeam Backup & Replication server. Otherwise, you will not be able to add SCVMM servers to Veeam Backup & Replication.
- On every connected Hyper-V server, Veeam Backup & Replication deploys a set of components – Veeam Installer Service, Veeam Transport Service and Hyper-V Integration Service. Ensure that File and Printer Sharing is enabled in the network connection settings of the server; otherwise, the components will not be installed.
This only occurs in version 6 of Veeam Backup & Replication.
