Test Query: Failed virtual machines
For example: the virtual machine does not have the type of name specified by the Primary VM identifier parameter (such as host name or display name). Or the virtual machine name contains invalid characters. In any case, a virtual machine that is listed as FAILED should be investigated: it may be one that you want to back up.
To see the reason for the failure, click on the virtual machine in the Test Query Results. An explanation appears at the bottom of the screen.
Explanation: The virtual machine
Win%1 in the example does not have a host name. In the NetBackup policy, on the Hyper-V tab, the Primary VM identifier parameter may be set to VM hostname. In that case, NetBackup cannot refer to the virtual machine by its host name and thus cannot back it up.
To fix this problem, use the Hyper-V Manager to configure a host name for the virtual machine.
