NetVault Plug-in for Hyper-V 10.5 - User Guide

Prerequisites for installing the plug-in

Install Windows PowerShell® and configure the execution policy: Before you can use the plug-in, PowerShell 3.0 or later must be installed on the Hyper-V Server, and the execution policy for the local machine must be set to RemoteSigned. By default, Windows Server® 2008 R2 includes PowerShell 2.0, which you must update to 3.0 or later. Windows Server 2012 and 2012 R2 include 3.0 and 4.0, respectively.
Install Integration Services: The Integration Services must be installed on the VM from the Hyper‑V Server. Integration Services are installed by default on Windows-based VMs.
Install NetVault Backup Server and Client software: At a minimum, the NetVault Backup Client software must be installed on the Hyper‑V Server. For instructions on installing the NetVault Backup Client software and adding the Hyper‑V Server as a Heterogeneous Client, see the Dell NetVault Backup Installation Guide.

Installing the plug-in

Installing the plug-in in a standalone deployment

Access the NetVault Configuration Wizard or Manage Clients page.
To access the NetVault Configuration Wizard page:
In the Navigation pane, click Guided Configuration.
On the NetVault Configuration Wizard page, click Install Plugins.
To access the Manage Clients page:
On the Manage Clients page, select the machine that contains the Hyper‑V® Server, and click Manage.
On the View Client page, click the Install Plugin button ().
Click Choose Plug-in File, and navigate to the location of the “.npk” installation file for the plug-in — on the installation CD or the directory to which the file was downloaded from the website.
Select the file entitled “hv-x-x-x-x.npk,” where xxxx represents the version number, and click Open.

Installing the plug-in in a clustered deployment

Installation of the plug-in in a clustered environment is completed through the creation of a Virtual Client on the NetVault Backup Server. A Virtual Client is a group of nodes within the cluster. NetVault Backup Server views this group as a single client that is created to back up clustered VMs. During the Virtual Client creation process, the plug-in is transferred from the NetVault Backup Server to selected nodes within a cluster and installed there.
