When trying to browse the Virtual Machines of a HyperV Server, by using the NetVault HyperV APM, you cannot browse the Virtual Machines, and the list of VM under LocalHost does not expand and remains blank.
You get that when :
i)- Open the NetVault Console
ii)- Click on the Backup Icon
iii)- Double Click on the HyperV Server
iv)- Double Click on the NetVault HyperV APM
v)- Double Click on the LocalHost Icon in order to expand the Virtual Machines
vi)- It will not expand and it will not show the Virtual machines under LocalHost.
This happens because the LocalMachine Execution Policy is set to Restrict.
You can see that by doing the following:
1)- Login as Local Administrator to the HyperV and Run the Command Prompt As Administrator.
2)- Type PowerShell and press enter to enter the PowerShell command line imput mode.
3)- Now issue the following PowerShell command: PS C:\Program Files (x86)\BakBone Software\NetVault Backup\scripts\HyperV> Get-ExecutionPolicy
4) The command will result on the following line indicating that the ExecutionPolicy is currently set to Restricted:
PS C:\Program Files (x86)\BakBone Software\NetVault Backup\scripts\HyperV> Restricted
If the current ExecutionPolicy is set to Restricted, you need to change it to RemoteSigned in order to be able to browse the Virtual Machines, and populate the list of VM under LocalHost with all Virtual Machine that are part of this HyperV server.
If you still have the PowerShell CommandLine window open as on the steps above run the following PowerShell command:
a)- Now issue the following PowerShell command: PS C:\Program Files (x86)\BakBone Software\NetVault Backup\scripts\HyperV> Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned
b) The PowerShell command will result on the following line indicating that the ExecutionPolicy was now changed to RemoteSigned:
c)- Please check to make sure the if you run Get-ExecutionPolicy again, you will now get RemoteSigned
d)- Now you will be able to Browse all Virtual Machines under LocalHost by following the steps i) up to vi) above
