2012 Hyper-V Guests not showing in server list
I have just taken over the backup of a couple of Hyper-V servers in our environment running Server 2008R2 VMs. One of these is a sharepoint 2010 server for light usage the others are a mix of standard file servers and application servers.
SBE 2012 is installed on one of the VM hosts [V-Host1].
SBE RAWs agent is installed on the second [V-Host2]
I've been going over the backups and would like to institute a more granular restore option for our servers.
My Jobs consist of the following:
For V-Host1 I have a simple single server backup with the VMs selected from the available node.
For V-Host2, again, a simple backup with the VMs selected in the appropriate node.
For Sharepoint - Sharepoint agent installed and running farm backup.
I am unable to restore individual files from any of the VMs on V-Host1. There is no option as the servers do not show up in the server list.
However, the Guests on V-Host2 are showing up in the Server List in Backup and Restore tab. They are demarked as Windows Computer (Virtual Machine) with a blue icon. I can perform file restorations from these without issue. I believe this is how they're supposed to appear and I do not recall doing anything special to make them appear in this list.
How do I get the VMs from V-Host1 to show up in the server list as VMs so that the data backed up in the V-Host1 backup can be restored on a file basis?
