Browse for Hyper-V virtual machines
On the Clients tab, click to select virtual machines.
The following table describes the options that you can use to select Hyper-V virtual machines.
Table: Options for selecting Hyper-V virtual machines
Enter the VM display name (or VM hostname or VM GUID)
The type of name to enter depends on the Primary VM identifier setting on the Hyper-V tab of the policy.
Enter the host name, display name, or GUID of the virtual machine. The format of the host name or display name depends on your system. It may be the fully qualified name or another name, depending on your network configuration and how the name is defined in the guest OS. If NetBackup cannot find the name or GUID you enter, the policy validation fails.
Make sure theoption is unchecked.
Browse for Virtual Machines
Click this option to discover Hyper-V servers or cluster nodes (shown in the left pane). You can select virtual machines from a list (in the right pane).
The virtual machine names that are listed may be derived from a cache file. Use of the cache file is faster than rediscovering the virtual machines on the network if your site has a large number of virtual machines. If the virtual machine is turned off but was turned on when the cache file was last created, its name appears in the list.
If the display name of the virtual machine was recently changed in the Hyper-V Manager, note: The virtual machine name that was used for the backup does not change.
If NetBackup cannot obtain the IP address of the virtual machine, the IP address is displayed as NONE.
To update the cache file and re-display virtual machines, click the refresh icon to the right of the Last Update field. This field shows the date and time of the most recent cache file that contains the names of virtual machines.
