When you add a Hyper-V data source, a discovery job is automatically created and enabled. The hosts discovered by this job are then subject to configuration and performance data collection as configured in Schedule data collection.

  1. Click Add to enter a new data source.
    For each data source you enter, provide the required information:
    • Host Type
      A Virtual Center, Unmanaged Host, or Hyper-V host.
    • Network Address
      The static IP address or fully qualified domain name of the data source.
    • TCP Port
      The HTTPS port of the admin page for this data source.
    • Description
    • Collector
      If you have set up a federated data collector, select it. In other cases, select localhost.
    • Validate Connections
      An optional step to confirm that the data source is reachable.
  2. If you selected Hyper-V, provide the required information:
    • Group Name
      A description of the Hyper-V host groups.
    • Network Address
      The static IP address or fully qualified domain name of the data source.
    • CIDR or Range
      The range where the host is located (if applicable).
  3. Click Save to add the endpoint to the data source list.

After entering all data sources, click Next.
