How to use the Hyper-V Plugin

Hello,

so I just installed the Hyper-V Plug-In (or "Plugin", as what is it called within the NVBU Console). I have NVBU Version 11.4 here. What is the next step to backup the VMs running on my Hyper-V 2016 Hosts? I tried to create a new backup job, but then this:

Where do I add servers/targets for the Hyper-V Plugin, so my Netvault Client (the Server named "NetVault-Mgmt") sees the actual VMs and/or the actual Hyper-V 2016 Hosts I have?

This guide http://docadmin.quest.com/netvault-backup-plug-in-for-hyper-v/11.2/user-guide/installing-or-removing-the-plug-in/deploying-the-plug-in?ParentProduct=1573 says I have to install the Plugin on the Hyper-V Host. But how? Just doubleclick the plugin on the Hyper-V Host (hv-11-4-0-4-Windows.npk)? I don't think my Host even recognizes what to do with a npk-File (also, I have no desktop on t he Hyper-V Host at all because of core installation).

  • Hi.
    You would have to install a NetVault Client on the Hyper-V Host. If the host is running on a GUI-less Windows OS, then you can install the client via the Deployment Manager (ie Push Install Method) in the NetVault WebUI, support.quest.com/.../180966.

    Or install the client in Unattended Mode at the command prompt on the intended client itself. support.quest.com/.../8

    From there, you can then install the plugin from the WebUI on the host and just follow the Hyper-V Plugin documentation for the rest of the setup and configuration.
