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.

Error Access denied or timeout expired.
Error Check if you have local administrator privileges on computer '192.168.1.26'.
Error Possible reasons:

Veeam B&R 18.104.22.1689 Adds support for Server 2019/Hyper-V 2019. However, there is a known issue with RemoteWMI on Build 1803 of Windows 10/Server 2016.
Upgrade to Windows build 1809.
The specific build that introduces this issue is: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4343909/windows-10-update-kb4343909
Builds earlier than 1803 do not seem to be affected either.
