Protecting HyperV VMs - some VMs not displaying RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a Protection group protecting a VM (Windows Server 2008 R2) on a 2012 R2 HyperV server.  The VM is actually a replicated VM from a 2012 R2 production HyperV.  We've stopped HyperV replication for this VM on the current 2012 R2 HyperV server, and are doing HyperV replication to a new 2012 R2 HyperV server with more disk space.  Unfortunately, our DPM 2012 R2 server isn't able to see the replicated VM on the new 2012 R2 HyperV server, although other VMs are visible on the same HyperV server.  We've hit the Refesh button many times, but no luck.

    We've now tried Protecting this VM directly from the production 2012 R2 HyperV, but none of the VMs are visible at all in DPM 2012 R2.

    Have we hit a limit somewhere for VMs?

    Thanks

  • Apparently, the VM was filtered entirely out of the view for the new HyperV, until Protection on the old HyperV was stopped for it.
