Challenge

When attempting to add Microsoft Hyper-V Servers to Veeam Backup & Replication the following error is displayed:

Veeam Backup & Replication server does not have Virtual Machine Manager Administrator Console installed.
If you installed VMM Console while Veeam Backup & Replication UI was open, please restart the UI.
Make sure you're using a supported version of SCVMM (2012 or later).
Add HV Host Error

Cause

This error occurs for either of the following reasons:

  • Prerequisite software necessary for adding a System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) server to Veeam Backup & Replication is not installed on the Veeam Backup Server.

    or
  • The wrong server type was selected on the 'Type' tab.

Solution

If adding an actual System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) server

  • SCVMM Admin UI must be installed on the backup server. Otherwise, you will not be able to add SCVMM servers to the backup infrastructure.
  • SCVMM console version must match the management server version.
  • Check firewall configuration to ensure traffic from the Veeam Backup & Replication server can reach the SCVMM server.
    Review: Used Ports

 

If there is no System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) server in the environment

  • Return to the Type tab of the New Hyper-V Server wizard and select either Hyper-V Cluster or Hyper-V Standalone.
Server Types

More information

  • When adding a Hyper-V server, the server type Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager is selected by default on the Type tab. The correct server type must be chosen.
