Adding a Hyper-V core server to Veeam fails.  The following is present in logs:
 
[Timestamp] <92> Error    Failed to start service 'VeeamDeploymentService'. Host: ‘x.x.x.x’..
[Timestamp] <92> Error    Failed to start deployment service on the target host

Cause

The ServerCore-WoW64 role is not installed on the Hyper-V host: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dd371790(v=vs.85).aspx

Some Veeam services run as 32 bit processes. 

Solution

To resolve, install ServerCore-WoW64 role on Hyper-V host (requires reboot).
