Setting up HyperV Replica RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am having a problem setting up a Hyper-V Replica.

    I have 2 servers running WS2012 Datacentre. Both are in workgroups. The DC and DNS server is in a VM.

    I brought up a test XP VM to try out the Replica fetures.

    1. Configured the destination server - enabled Replication, open the firewall port, selected Kerberos authentication on port 80.

    2. Started the Replication wizard, and plugged in the details - kerberos to port 80, and I get a Kerberos authentication error. "Failed to enable replication"

    On the host server I get eventID 32000 on the Main Server – “Hyper-V failed to enable replication for virtual machine 'zMattra': No credentials are available in the security package (0x8009030E). (Virtual Machine ID 6525C88D-A7FE-4D3E-B880-76AFAD79DD11)” with EventID 29210 – “Hyper-V failed to authenticate the Replica server DESTINY using Kerberos authentication. Error: No credentials are available in the security package (0x8009030E)”

    And on the destination, I also get EventID 29212 – “Hyper-V failed to authenticate the primary server using Kerberos authentication. Error: No credentials are available in the security package (0x8009030E)”

    File shares are visible between the two servers.

    Please add the two Windows Server 2012 servers to the domain

  • Isn't this feature supposed to work in a non domain environment?

  • Hi,

    What is the current situation for your issue?

    By the way, I’d like to confirm whether the primary and Replica servers are members of the same domain or in mutually trusted domains?

    If not, other scenarios require certificate-based authentication

    However, according to your description, it seems that they are in a workgroup instead of a domain, they require certificate-based authentication.

  • I the end, I had a good look at all the documentation, and am preparing a blog on how to do this for small business users.

    Yes, the servers were in a workgroup, but there needs to be some customisation done with the server name to be able to get a SSL certificate do that it will work. The servername needs to be a FQDN to work properly.
