Challenge

Attempting to add Server 2019/Hyper-V 2019 may fail with an access or timeout issue when Veeam is installed on Server 2016/Windows 10.

When attempting to add Hyper-V 2019:

Error Failed to connect to host 192.168.1.26
Error Access denied or timeout expired.
Error Check if you have local administrator privileges on computer '192.168.1.26'.
Error Possible reasons:
Error 1. Invalid credentials.
Error 2. Specified host is not a Hyper-V server. (System.Exception)


 

Cause

Veeam B&R 9.5.4.2399 Adds support for Server 2019/Hyper-V 2019. However, there is a known issue with RemoteWMI on Build 1803 of Windows 10/Server 2016.

Solution

Upgrade to Windows build 1809.
