Configuring the plug-in

Configuring settings for a clustered deployment

If you are using a Windows Server 2012, 2012 R2, 2016,or 2019 environment, an extra option, Show VMs being managed by a cluster, might be visible on the Plug‑in for Hyper‑V tab. This option is only available for a physical machine if the host is part of a Hyper-V Cluster.In the Navigation Pane, click Create Backup Job, and click Create New next to the Selections list.
Click Hyper-V Plugin, and select Configure from the context menu.In the Configure window, if you want to restore multiple VMs simultaneously, enter the maximum number of parallel streams that you want to apply to this Hyper-V host.

For more information about parallel streams, see Configuring parallel streams.

If the Show VMs being managed by a cluster option is available, select it only if the host is not managed by a Virtual Client.
Cluster Domain: Enter the Windows domain of the cluster.
Username: Enter the account name that has the permission and privileges required for administering the cluster and Hyper-V; that is, a domain-administrator account.
Password: Enter the password associated with the user specified in the preceding field.

Enabling communication between VMs in clustered environment

If you are using NetVault Backup Client software 10.0.5 or earlier, after installing and configuring a NetVault Backup Virtual Client, ensure that the Virtual Client can manage all hosts included in a cluster. Also ensure that each host can access any other host included in the cluster.

cd <NetVaultBackupInstallDirectory>\util
The default installation directory is C:\Program Files (x86)\Quest\NetVault Backup\util or the corresponding directory under C:\Program Files.
nvclientaccess -client <clientName> -password <clientPassword>
where <clientName> is the name of the next physical client that was added to the Virtual Client and <clientPassword> is the same one that you specified when you added the client to the NetVault Backup Server.
For example, if you have three hosts, run nvclientaccess -client <clientName> password <clientPassword> on Host1 with <clientName> as Host2. Run nvclientaccess -client <clientName> password <clientPassword> again on Host1 with <clientName> as Host3.
