Test the connection between the Hyper-V host and Virtualization Manager

Test the connection to ensure that Virtualization Manager can connect to and collect data from the Hyper-V host.

To test the connection, create a discovery job specifically for each target Hyper-V host. Run the discovery job after each change to test the connection.

If you use different credentials for different hosts, you can request a domain administrator account to perform these tests.

Add a new discovery job

  1. Log in to Virtualization Manager as an administrator.
  2. Click Setup > Administration > Credentials.
  3. Ensure that the correct Hyper-V credentials are entered.

    You must add each credential separately.

  4. Click Setup > Administration > Data Sources.
  5. Click Add > Add Hyper-V hosts
  6. Enter a group name, and click Add Hosts.
  7. Enter the IP address of the monitored Hyper-V host, and click Save.
  8. Click Save again to begin the first discovery job.

The first time you add the host, discovery runs automatically.

Run an existing discovery job

  1. Click Setup > Administration > Discovery Jobs.
  2. Select the discovery job you made.
  3. Click Run Now.

If Virtualization Manager can discover VMs, run the associated collection schedule to begin the information gathering process.
