SnapManager for Hyper-V

Installation order for SnapDrive for Windows and SnapManager for Hyper-V


You must install SnapDrive for Windows on all hosts before installing SnapManager for Hyper-V. If the hosts are members of a cluster, all nodes in the cluster require the installation of SnapDrive for Windows.

When SnapManager for Hyper-V starts, it communicates with SnapDrive for Windows to get the list of all virtual machines running on a host. If SnapDrive for Windows is not installed on the host, this API fails and the SnapManager for Hyper-V internal cache does not update with the virtual machine information.

You might receive the following message: Error :SnapManager for Hyper-V is not licensed on the host or in the Storage System, backup is aborted:.
