Discovering Hyper-V Servers in OpManager

To discover the Hyper-V host and VMs, you just need to provide the IP address and WMI credentials of Hyper-V host. The VMs are automatically discovered along with the host.

Steps to discover the Hyper-V host and VMs:

Before proceeding to discover the host and VMs, ensure that you have configured the credentials for both the host and VMs in the credential library. To discover the host and VMs:
  1. Go to Admin-> Add Device. (You can also access the Add Device window from Maps-> Virtual Devices-> Add New Hyper-V Host).
  2. Enter the Host Name / IP Address.
  3. Enter the correct Netmask and select the appropriate credentials.
  4. Click Add Device button to add the host.
If  any of the VMs  are already discovered or added, OpManager automatically maps them as Virtual Device. Once the discovery is over you can find the Host & VMs under 'Virtualization' tab.

Note: If the device has been added successfully, but not displayed under the 'Virtualization' tab, search for that device. Go to its snapshot page and look for the device type. If it is mentioned as ‘unknown’, wrong credentials might have been provided or it is not reachable during discovery. Provide the correct credentials and click on ‘Rediscover Now’ under Actions tab in the snapshot page, to discover it as an Hyper-V host.
